Ze Frank's "Young Me, Now Me" Features Childhood Photographs Repeated Years Afterwards

Posted: Updated:

An internet legend in his own right, comedian Ze Frank often sets challenges to his followers. 'Young Me, Now Me', launched in summer 2010, became a phenomenon.

The principle is simple: find an old photograph of yourself or someone in your family, and then repeat the pose in as precise a manner as you can.

Some of the results, a compilation of which are about to published in a new book, are laugh-out-loud funny. Others are poignant reminders of how much people change - and how much they stay the same.

We've picked out some of our favorites from the book, alongside commentary by the people featured in the photographs.

Is there a photograph from your own childhood that you would want to replicate? Tell us about it in the comments.
