MSc Forensic Art

Lucrezia Rodella

An Artificial Age Progression is a prediction of the appearence of a person after she or he goes missing for a long period of time. The main changes in our face happen during childhood and teenage years, and they are not precise and set. My research investigated the accuracy of this forensic technique. The participants have been asked to provide images of themselves as children and as adults, as well as some photographs of their parents and siblings. In the first stage of the research I have only been allowed to see the images of the targets when they were young and family members' photographs. After a first analysis of the facial appearence of each target and family members, I produced an image depicting the grown up target at about 20 years old. When all the Age Progression images have been produced I have been sent the other photograps and started the final analysis. The aim of this project is to study the accuracy of this process and compare the Artificial Age Progression images to the actual photograph of the real grown up people.
