Alper Yesiltas, an artist from Turkey, says he used artificial intelligence to create his hyper-realistic pictures, which include portrayals of Princess Diana. It is part of an ongoing series that he’s spent months working on.

Called As If Nothing Happened, Yesiltas says he chose famous people he “missed the most” for his series, and is working to add more following the positive response he’s received.

One photo, which shows an aged Princess Diana, posted days after the death of Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month, was particularly resonant. In it, a grey-haired and wrinkled Diana looks at the camera, wearing a white shirt with a pair of sunglasses on top of her head.

Princess Diana, who died in 1997 at the age of 36, would have been 61 today.
