Photographer Zed Nelson has released an intriguing series of family photos of her friend's family.

Nelson photographed the family for twenty years using the same lighting, backdrop and positions so he could focus on how the individuals changed over the years. From changing clothes and hairstyles to the baby boy physically growing up into a man, it is fascinating to see how this passage of time affects people.

Nelson has done a great job of helping viewers focus on the little but interesting changes in the family, like how the boy went from baby to rebellious Limb Bizkit fan to adult. These family photos show them laughing, smiling, looking serious, tired etc, over the twenty years they've lived together and it is a touching and poignant homage to the trials and tribulations of being a family.
