    1986: The year she smiled

    • YUp

      Meh, thought she might turn out hot but……..

      • Anna

        I get it. It's Kristen Stewart's mom

      • Bubba

        ….cranky all her life! Bleh!

        • Red

          No kidding, what a bitch.

      • vegasnites

        Thought both of these while scanning through.. and after I was done…

        Why was this important enough for me to see???

    • O_O

      pretty damn depressing…

    • cicadetta

      And then the '90s happened…

    • Anon

      No she's the one turned around. Not smiling

    • Dave

      It was a good year.

    • Warren

      Do NOT google image search Jack Radcliffe!

      • @Z_Triple_T

        dammit! you told me not to do it, and i did it anyway!
        HE'S RIGHT! DON'T DO IT!

    • Ekajevans

      So sad, my entire life I have smiled. I feel bad for her.

      • Always Last

        It would seem that she became engaged in some sort of risky behavior – check out her face and body in the later photos. Definitely something going on there.

        • Sme

          Yeah. Marriage.

    • 1/2FunAndDon'tCry

      Is this Julia from Obama's new add campaign.

    • adsareaids

      Fairly mediocre photos. Just because they lack color doesn't make them good. The subject matter is amusing to her father, and that is all.

  • etcrr

    Strange indeed, Ok I don't get it

    • stan

      fuck off homo!!!

    • fignewton

      Who doesn't have a photo of their child from each year they are/were alive!??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? She's ugly as hell too

    • jimmy c

      Oh look at me…I'm so artsy.

      • bob

        Her breast size never changed in 37 years…….

        • Ray Pissed

          I was like, "This is the Chive…. it's only a matter of time before she turns into a smoking hottie" but it just never happened 😦

          • edslerson

            wow there seem to be more douchebags in the comments than usual today

  • OneClownShoe

    At least she smiled once.

    • sshhh

      twice #6 and #20.
      Still a suicide waiting to happen

  • Christian Argueta

    what is this ???

    • sshhh

      This is The Chive

      • yo boi

        you don't say

        • sshhh

          yes I did

    • Pingo the shoe

      It's Black and White, therefor it's art!

    • Hugh

      I was watching The Voice the other night… You've really let yourself go. Just sayin'.

    • Livin' Legend


    • rromero

      This is SPARTAAAAA!!

  • simming-smith

    miserable sod.

    • 650

      This is what happens to a kid when their dad is an "artist"

  • Giuseppe Black

    So a dad took pictures of his kid. Isn't that what all parents do???

    • Jack Radcliffe

      did it before it was main stream…

      • Aja Olander

        taking photographs of your kid wasn't mainsteam in those days? gee, my grandparents must have been ahead of their time….

    • ggg1228

      Dad didn't take pictures. He took photographs. Big difference.

      • Paul from the gump

        Maybe he should've stopped taking "photographs" long enough to stop his 16 year old daughter from smoking cigs.

  • CoLNo1

    It's always interesting to see the same individual, naturally progressing through both life, and the styles of the moment

    • Luurtsy

      I have to confess, I immediately scrolled to her 20's to see if she turned out hot.

    • Chris

      Correction: it's typically interesting. Not with this chick. WORST…POST…EVER…

  • Grendel

    It's hard to fit 37 years in 41 pictures. Well Done!

    • Captain Planet

      Wtf all u have to do is take one a year to hit 37. Technically, u could call him a dumbass for taking more than 1 a year 4 times. This is stupid. All parents take pictures"photographs" of their kids. Fuck this hipster.

      • annonymous

        Keep calm and Chive On.

  • pewpewpew

    Still more expressions than Kristen Stewart?

    • Zach

      I wish I could like this comment 1 million times!

    • twoedges

      comment of the week

    • F3n1x187

      have a thumbs up Sir

  • Michael Bay

    All that maturing and no boobs, this story lacks substance…

    • PRLaw

      She may lacks boobs, other people grow and only primal desires matured on their brains

      • Chiefs420

        You eat poop.

    • Ivoidwarranties

      That was a good one.

      And some people just don't get humor…

    • bzazz

      You would know something about a story lacking substance, wouldn't you Michael Bay?

    • Chad


  • Koaz

    The photography is breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you Chive, I feel less guilty about scrolling the chive now, that was good quality stuff and most definitely NOT a waste of time. Some might disagree to which I say KCCO.

    • Ron

      Yeah 41 photos of someone frowning and sucking on ciggerettes is breathtaking.

      • MarlboroMan

        I love how you spelled cigarettes. Was that intentional?

    • TimTam

      I still fapped to it – but it got harder as she got older.

      Anyone agree?

      • thatguy

        *shakes head disapprovingly* For shame sir, for shame

    • Oliver Vorian Wang

      Yep. A story told through photos like this is the reason Chive stands out from the other photo-entertainment sites I visit. And I wish there are more posts like this.

      Keep Calm, Chive On, and May the 4th be with everyone.

    #4 — Where oh where have your little girl dreams gone?

    • Witchlover

      Up in a puff of tobacco smoke….

      • Yes

        Oh for sad are her poor sad her

  • Dave

    Is this TheBerry?

    • f0urd3gr33s

      No, this is art. Broaden your horizons. It's good for you. 🙂

      • Bob

        I don't think I'd go so far as to call it "art"….
        It was "interesting" though.

        • opinions

          Many modern artist would call this art, if it caused you to give a reaction it's art if it causes you to feel anything its art. since you found it interesting it's art… that's according to contemporary/modern artists.

    • water

      there is more to chive than boobies…maybe

  • Oregon_country

    #35 Before the mirror shots and camera phones, classic.

  • esotericchuck

    Her 1995 picture is very beautiful, but she does not ever appear happy. Though throughout my childhood and teenage years I would be irritated at a camera in my face.

  • sshhh

    Just saw the others photo's of Radcliff.
    Missed the ball on this one Bob.

  • givethedjabj

    Does she ever smile, moody cow

    • sendeb

      She doesn't smile. Therefore, it is art.

      • thatguy

        That doesnt make any sense, so it must be correct!

  • Kahless

    She looks like she had a horrible life

    • Mike

      i was thinking the same thing. what a self loathing woman

  • Henrid84

    Really liked this post. Great Photography. Not everyone is always smiles.

    • who cares

      Yeah, but most people don't always frown either…

  • squosh

    She seems interesting. And the photos are beautiful.

  • phoenixpwns

    #7 Emo kids back in the 80s.

  • awhite2020

    Someone prescribe her Prozac stat!

  • Hugh

    "Okay now for this next one, try to look bored."

  • meh

    i blame the parents

  • planedr

    And the heroin starts mid 90's.

    • DP13

      I was totally expecting the ol' needle and spoon photograph as well.
