Using the aging human body as her subject, photographer Kelsey Duff photographs an 18-year-old and 65-year old for her human body photo series, 'Young and Old.'

The photographer created the human body photo series for a undergraduate freshman project, and did such a remarkable job of cataloging how the human process works to an "everywoman" figure.

Choosing not to show the model's faces gives the series a much more dramatic and anthropological vantage point on the subject. It does however show stretch marks, scars, pores and wrinkles, which are elusive in our modern-day media.

Duff's mesmerizing visual narrative of young and old is poignant reminder of the evolution of the human body.
