The photographs of Bobby Neel Adams are a mash-up of eras that are a bit freaky to look at.

Adams tears a childhood photo in half and then fuses it with half of a recent photo to create a time-traveling human hybrid. These images are created without the use of Photoshop, which gives them an authentic feeling. The tear down the middle is jagged, almost as if it’s a tear in the space-time continuum. Adams also makes the people in the photos wear the same thing they were wearing in their childhood photo to make the blend of skin and fabric smooth.

While scientists have still not been able to come up with a time-traveling machine, the photos of Bobby Neel Adams give a quick glimpse into the past. Stats for Time-Teared Photos Trending: Older & Popular
