A photographer has tracked down people he candidly pictured in the 1970s to recreate the photographs more than 40 years later.
Chris Porsz, a retired paramedic and amateur photographer, took shots of people enjoying fish and chips, drunk nights out and trips to the fairground during the 70s and 80s.
He then decided it would be fun to attempt to reconstruct the exact same photographs – albeit it those pictured are 40 years older.
Amazingly, he has managed to recreate all 168 snaps in the space of a year, mostly thanks to the power of social media.
This is the second set of photos he has recreated after his first set was published in his 2016 book named Reunions, thought to be the first of its kind.
The project began when some of his long-lost subjects recognised themselves after he published their pictures in local and national papers, on his website and on Facebook.
Such was the book’s success, he has now decided to release a second edition and persuaded more to pose in front of the camera.

The first book contained 134 sets of reunions, with the second edition featuring a further 168 pictures.
Chris first became interested in photography after buying a camera when his first child Simon was born in 1978.
Initially only using his camera for family photos, Chris subsequently began walking the streets for inspiration.
In 1986, though he became a paramedic and, with three children, life unsurprisingly became too busy and he had less time to devote to his hobby.
His photo albums were left to gather dust until 2009, when he sent some of the old pictures to his local newspaper.
Readers fell in love with them and soon he was getting letters from those who recognised themselves in the photos.
