If you couldn't get enough of the Ten Year Challenge, the photo_time_traveling Insta is for you

Knock yourselves out.

WHEN YOU CONSIDER the popularity of the Ten Year Challenge, it’s fair to say that the online trend, which swept social media at the beginning of this year, simultaneously appealed to two very different camps.

There were those who would undoubtedly check the ‘self-deprecating’ box when categorising their sense of humour, and therefore couldn’t resist the urge to poke fun at their former selves.

And then there were those who regularly (and unironically) make reference to their ‘glow-up’, so, unsurprisingly, grabbed the opportunity with both hands, safe in the knowledge they would – on this occasion – be immune from scorn.

In other words, the Ten-Year-Challenge was a pure delight for everyone who chose to get involved.

So with that in mind, allow us to point you in the direction of the photo_time_traveling Instagram account, which plays host to photos of high-profile individuals posing with their younger selves.

Created back in June, the account is a must-follow for anyone who loves nostalgic shots, adores celebrity ‘then’ and ‘now’ photos and willingly admits that their favourite contributions to the Ten Year Challenge were the celebrity ones.

And the best part? Some of these uploads wouldn’t even qualify for a ten-year challenge, but actually span decades, with some uploads showing A-listers posing with their childhood selves.

In less than eight months, Ard Gelinck, the hugely talented person behind the account, has amassed over 25,000 followers on Instagram.

Your next follow? We thought so.
