“Young Age(d)”: With the help of AI, we created images showing what young celebrities would look like decades from now (7 photos)
“Young Age(d)”: A project that captures the aged versions of young stars.
I’m Alper Yesiltas, a lawyer and photographer based in Istanbul, Turkey. I have been imagining landscapes and recording memories for about 19 years. During that time, some of my photographs have been edited around the world in books, magazines, exhibitions, and websites, and have won awards in several photography competitions.
You may have heard of my previous project called “as if nothing happenedIt depicts what some of the lost celebrities would look like if they were alive today.disnessNot my first published, it depicts what iconic people might look like if they lived in our time. bored panda.
I would like to share with you the first image collection of my new AI-based project called “Young Age(d)”. The question behind this project is, “What will some of the young people we know look like decades from now?” We welcome your feedback and suggestions.
In my previous projects, I worked on the stars that I care about the most, but in this project, I worked on the stars that people care about the most.
I’ve met people before on two different projects. The first project, called “As If Nothing Happened,” portrayed people who might still be alive, while the second project, “Thisness,” depicts people living in our time, not theirs. The difference between this project is that it depicts people living in the present decades from now.
In my work, I always start with the face. I use several applications and he creates one. The most difficult part is to make the outline of the face after you are sure that you have the persuasiveness of the dreamed face. After that, I will finish the work with a photo-related application.
That said, I will continue the current project in 2023, but I think there will be projects that are not just faces. A common feature of these projects is getting people to ask, “Is that true?”
My recent projects have been seen by many people around the world, so of course the fact that my work has gone viral has felt good. , increased my confidence in my work. So in 2023, we will also continue the current series, as mentioned above.
I also have an exhibition called “Digital Serendipity”. This exhibition brings together different approaches to working with artificial intelligence in the field of new media art. From studying the aesthetics of neural networks to critically understanding their impact on the modern world and projects at their intersection. Broaden our understanding of art and innovation and the role of modern technology.
