Turning 50 years old, photographer Thomas Kierok felt both confronted with and inspired by a sense of his own transiency and set himself the task of illustrating every year of life from 1 to 100 through portraits of different people. For more than a year he devoted his time to seeking - and documenting - the transformations that define our lives. It is a photographic study of the compelling processes of change and development the human face undergoes in the course of a lifetime. The result is a series of 100 images presented here in large format. They tell the story of human development, from newborn baby to centenarian. Kierok deliberately created his portraits to be homogenous in style and purist in tone, drawing our gaze to the essence at the heart of each image and holding it there.
