Pictures of famous authors in their early and late years - compared

How we see the author in our mind is usually based on how she or he looked in the times of the biggest fame.

One picture can say a lot about the person, but two pictures show the personality.

Take a look at the collage created by Prateek Lala. It’s entitled “We were all young once,” and puts together pictures of 104 famous writers and poets.

In total, you will see 208 pictures, though, because there are two pictures of each author. On the left side, you will see the writer as a child, teenager, or young man. You’ll be able to compare it with the picture on the right, which is, in most cases, the author’s most recognizable image.
