Photographs have the ability to really show us the level of change our appearance has experienced over time and Identities by Ana Oliveira helps seamlessly compare and contrast the changes in a seamless manner. The shots in the series are relatively reenacted because Oliveira tried to get the clothing and pose as close as possible to help put the focus onto the finer details.
What's created in Identities by Ana Oliveira is a truly artistic exercise in time keeping; instead of saying how many years older these individuals are or how many different experiences they've had, the stories can be told by the wrinkles on their face and unspoken energy.
It's interesting to see the ways in which we change and how we will forever stay the same; it's stunning and surreal.
