“Reflection” gives insight into the former lives of senior citizens.
Tom Hussey’s images reveal how much we change in life.
Tom spoke to a veteran right before his 80th birthday; it
was his quotes that inspired Tom to create the series.
“It’s a universal condition,” Tom stated. “At some point in your life you
look in the mirror and say, “Wait a minute, how did I get this old?”
You look in the mirror and wonder when it happened.
The idea for doing these images was a person looking
in the mirror and seeing what they remember.
When you look in the mirror every day you recognize yourself;
but when you go back and look at a photo of yourself 20
years ago you say, “Wow, I really have changed.”
“I can’t believe I’m going to be 80,” he sighed. “I feel like I just came
back from the war. I look in the mirror and I see this old guy.”
You get to a milestone … 20, 40 or 80 and you can’t
believe that much time has gone by.
Take time to appreciate every day because
these years will be gone before you know it.
May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
