" We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made of layers, cells, constellations. "

Portland, Oregon-based artist Cari Vander Yacht scans vintage photos from thrift stores and converts them into these hilarious GIFS.

Vintage Photos Turned Into Humorous GIFS
