Aging face transformation gifs

Young to old, gifs showing the transformation of age.

You can see a video of the sculptures on YouTube.

Facing Time:

Facing Time: A family's yearly self-portrait from 1976 to 2002 is both uplifting and unsettling; a bit like human life itself. How does one separate the morbid fascination with aging from the spiritual joy of growth? Not to mention the element of voyeurism... [From ZoneZero, via Eclectica.]
