The ‘70s Archives’ Instagram Account Shares Interesting Images From This Decade To Create A Vivid Picture Of How Life Was Back Then (30 Pics)

Sometimes, when viewing my photos stored on my laptop, I would feel nostalgic. Not only because of the memories captured in the photos but because of the dates. And those dates would remind me how great life was back then. The dates themselves are the record and the footprint of the past that we use to look back on what had happened and won’t come back. Don’t you just feel a bit of sadness looking at old pictures?

We have made a similar comparison post before, but today, there is no “before and after,” it’s just the “before.” Today, we’ll dive into the collection of nostalgic photos from the Instagram account 70sarchives that will make you miss those good ol’ days.

Celebrity Photographer Takes Photos Of Male Models Decades Apart In His Project “Now & Then” (10 Pics)

When we look back to our past selves, we can’t help but shed a tear. Look how far you’ve come! Look how much you’ve grown! You’re now a very different person from how you used to be a decade or two ago. It’s a fulfilling moment when you realize that you’ve come to your present state of life that you never thought you’d reach before.

And that’s the underlying message of these works by the photographer Doug Inglish. In his series called “Now & Then,” he presents a side-by-side comparison of the same models that he photographed decades ago. Seeing the same models in the same place but at a very different time will make you feel nostalgic and awe about how fast time flies! Check out our gallery of Doug’s works below!
