For the last three decades, a Chinese father and son have posed for the same photo every year. The resulting pictures show their dramatic ageing process. But more importantly, the photos demonstrate their close bond.
The photos range from the son’s birth, through his embarrassing teen years, and into adulthood. His father has literally been by his side every step of the way. When you look at the photos in succession, they are truly remarkable. Make sure you click through until the end – the last photo changes everything! Are you ready to be surprised?
