This is the second of the two photos I am trying to prove to be the same person. I think this is a later portrait of the same man. Again, putting the style of dress into a time frame would be a great help. Also, if the style of dress seems to be particular to a country it would be a help.

12/15/2013 3:07 PM I think that you have to take an artist's point of view also. See if a portraitist can look at it and draw the outline of the eyebrows, face and chin line, hairline, the ears to see if there is a match. The lines of the eyes do look similar. Also, the second photo is at least ten years after the first. The first looks to be in his twenties, the second, late thirties, early forties. Clothes styles may have changed in that time period. Do you know where these were taken? Clothing differences may also have had to do with location changes. (Eastern Europe or the US for example). Hope since so much time has past since you posted it, that you have found the answer!
