In the late 1970s and 1980s, street photographer Chris Porsz wondered through the streets of Peterborough, England with his camera capturing photos of passersby.

Chris’ photo subjects were everyday people, like policemen, punks, couples, family, and musician’s.

It took Chris seven years to track down some of his photo subjects, but when he did he was both emotional and excited about reunited with them and recreating the photos taken 40-years earlier. The project is titled ‘Reunions’.

“It has been enormously satisfying to do so many reunions and seeing the smiles on people’s faces as they met up with old friends again. I’ve felt very privileged,” said Porsz when reflecting on his project.
