This father-son (Tian Jun) and (Tian Li) duo have been posing for the same picture for the last 3 decades. Tian Li was born in southeast China in 1986 – his father was only 27 at the time. After the very first picture, Jun decided to make it a tradition. Every year on Tian Li’s birthday they would get together and recreate the photo. This series has become an internet sensation. The bond between this father and son is undeniable. At first, Li probably didn’t understand the significance of these photos but we know that he truly appreciates them now. They have kept this father-son tradition alive for the past 30 years and plan to do so with a new addition. Wait until you see the last picture. It will melt your heart.
In 2014, Jun and Li skipped a year, as Li was in the states for the birth of his own son. The father-son duo are planning on expanding to a trio and continuing their tradition with the next generation.
