I've been staring at this, speechless and thoughtless, for some time. It's a family in Buenos Aires that has taken pictures of itself every year for thirty years. Perhaps evading the spectacle of the depredations of age, I note that Nicolas acquired facial hair in 1998 followed by the impressionable Matias in 1999. Moody Sebastian held off until 2003. Daddy Diego was a beardy from day one. Susy just looks scarier and scarier until 2003 and then suddenly seems to discover irony. Perhaps she realised what a morbidly comic project this is.
