The Mirror of Memories by Tom Hussey (8 Photos)

This collection, titled 'Mirrors' was created by the talented Texas photographer Tom Hussey. It's quite beautiful and the idea of literally reflecting on our previous selves is a fantastic metaphor.

    Looking back and remembering a great life should never be depressing…

    Well said fp dallas.
    I once heard my grandmother say, "It's not the getting old that bothers me. It's the loss of youth."

    Kinda torn on this one. It's slightly depressing because it seems like they're reminded that their best years are behind them…..but then again it's a reflection of an accomplished and fulfilling life that should be celebrated. Surprisingly touching Chive, thanks

      I hate to go philosophical on you, but I think the 'hidden story' on this one is the image in the mirror is writing the story (of her life). The person sitting in front of the mirror holds the completed (and closed) book. But the look of satisfaction is what causes the thought – 'will I be satisfied with my life at that time?'…

      CRAP CHIVE, more stupid things to laugh at (but thanks for some serious thoughts)

  • showtownman

    Woulda been better if more than half of the old folks actually looked like older versions of their "former selves."

    These are extremely well done and beautiful. Really makes you think. Reflecting on your past is always time well spent. Whether it's about things you've done wrong or things that make you proud.

    This is stunning. I've read the old-age poems, heard the stories and whatnot, but until you see it, it doesn't seem real. How strange to think that the 'old people' we know have had many amazing experiences, and would still be if their bodies hadn't aged.

  • Danny

    Wow, that was a great pic set and a novel idea too

  • ank

    Really great.

  • china

    wow this gallery is amazing

  • Buffet

    Thought – provoking. I admire the originality. As some who rarely, if ever, experiences fear, I find the images here somewhat frightening. To be robbed of one's appearence and vitality is chilling. Could this be the reason Daltry sang "Hope I die before I get old"??
