Forever Young

There's a neat little site called Young Me/Now Me in which people upload current pictures of themselves posed to match an old photo.

A couple of years back we themed the design of Dreaming's CD (夢のアルバム – The Dream Album) in the same way. Dreaming are sisters who sing the Anpanman theme (and have for many years), and this was their first "solo" album. They had decades-old photos taken by their late father which I "matched" in current poses in photographs for my design of the album. It linked with their own childhood and parents, with the childhoods suggested by their main job around the children's character Anpanman – but, finally, also put them in the positions of the adults they are. Everything is just a continuum.
