He has won the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award in the United States, the Visa d'Or in France, and he nabbed the first prize in both the 2010 International Photography Awards and the 2010 Pictures of the Year International Competition. Some of his works are also kept in the permanent collection of the wondrous Victoria and Albert Museum.
Now that you know how brilliant he is, it is time for you to see one of his most emotional works. It has a simple concept: Take a photo of the same family in the same style every year for 25 years.
Check it out below!
The first photo shows the couple's wonderful baby who was positioned comfortably in a crib.
This photo was taken in the same year and shows the happy couple with their child.
By this point, the boy has already grown enough for it to stand while being supported.
In 1993, the kid seemed to be having so much fun. The father was also quite expressive.
In this year, both the mother and the father were smiling nicely while the kid was looking somewhere else.
In 1995, the kid was starting to have more hair and a rather smug yet adorable look.
This photo is quite lovely as the three of them are closer than before and they are all laughing.
The father is the only one smiling here, but it is nice to know that the kid is healthy.
Their child has developed a fluffy hairstyle. You can also realize how lighter the mother's hair had become.
The mother seems to love wearing comfortable and non-tight clothing.
This is another wonderful image that shows all of them in a happy and close state.
As much as I love the new hairstyle of the mother, I just have to cringe at the Limp Bizkit shirt of the child. Oh well, kids do go through those phases.
Here, the father looks dignified while the mother is seemingly fabulous with her elegant dress.
None of them are really smiling here, but the boy has clearly changed his fashion sense.
The mother now has some bangs, and the boy has reverted back to wearing shirts.
At this point, you would immediately realize just how fast puberty can affect a child. Take a look at his height now!
The boy is now a guy, and we can see that he is starting to develop his own serious look.
I do not want to cringe, but it looks like the boy became a fan of emo music, which is not really a problem as long as it is controlled.
Their child still has long hair, but his facial hair has obviously made him a man now.
Their son looks like an accomplished individual now, while the man and the woman are enjoying their middle-aged lives.
Their child has now lost his long hair, but the couple has kept their classic fashion sense.
Can you imagine that the boy would look like this? Back then, he was quite chubby, and now he looks like he grew up as a stereotypical nerd all along.
Their son is happy, even if he now has to wear a pair of glasses like his father.
The mother and the father no longer look as lively as before, but their son is the beacon of hope that they have developed together.
The father looks like a genius watchman, while the son evokes a sense of brilliance as if he wes a mathematician or scientist.
Finally, this is the latest photo the family has taken together. The parents have clearly aged gracefully, while their son is set to leave a mark as he embraces the future.
