These Two Brothers are Recreating Old Family Photos and It’s Hilarious…



Joe Luxton and his brother thought it would be a funny idea to recreate a bunch of old family photos and turn them into a calendar for their Mom for Christmas. They were right and the results are hilarious.

Joe, who’s a designer at design studio Build, has created a tumblr entitled Then/Now to document the results. What makes the recreations so enjoyable is that you can tell the brothers made an effort to not only recreate the poses and facial expressions, but they also tried their best to match the wardrobes and backgrounds. They even got their dad (and dog) in on the act!

Be sure to check out Then/Now for the latest!
