So many things change when a person ages. Wrinkles, changing hairlines, graying hair, the list goes on... But one thing that always stays the same is a person's identity.

For his latest project called "Faces Of Century", photographer Jan Langer captured over a dozen Czech centenarians and compared their pictures of when they were young, and when they were over 100 years old. "This set of comparative photos explores the similarities and the differences in appearance and in physiognomy," Langer writes about his project. "The characteristics of personality change throughout life but it seems as if individual nature remains rooted in the abyss of time." See the portraits below.

'cute' girl and 'cute' at over a century - a 23 looked like she was inquisitive and ready to have fun at the slightest provocation and at 101 had not lost her spirit.

I'm not sure if they're the same person. Ageing makes your nose bigger, and it's smaller when old in this case. Eyes of old gal are also much smaller, and don't have same shape. Am I wrong? Anyway, they do look lovely.

Good think: he hadn't lost any hair in the last 75 year. So there is still hope for me. ;_;
