Touching photo series shows deceased musicians as they look today

Had the great Freddie Mercury not succumbed to illness in 1991, he would have turned 76 earlier this month. And while we’ll never know what turns the late Queen frontman’s career would have taken in the 35 years since, a new art project has shed light on how he may have aged physically.

This is possible through the work of Alper Yesiltas, a lawyer and photographer based in Istanbul, Turkey. To be Like nothing happened project takes old images of musicians and celebrities and then – through the magic of artificial intelligence and photo manipulation – ages the subject to make them appear as if they were still alive.
