I would guess fairly recent from some former Warsaw Pact country/Soviet republic. Armenia or Georgia maybe.

mid 90s based on the hair, fit of the boy's shorts and the man's blazer.

I wore Vans in high school - at least two years. I graduated in 1997.

Well, it depends. Is this a Mormon family? The boys kinda look like it. Who takes formal family photos like that, except Mormons? (Just kidding)

Vanx have been popular for decades. They started in CA during the initial surfer craze there, and expanded around the West Coast. They were catching on in Seattle in the 80's/90's.

Is the older boy wearing earrings? If so, I'd say this pic is from 2010 or later.

OP - do you know what the answer is?

I'm curious as to why you came to question the year on this pic -

It appears that the older boy is wearing earrings, also might have tweezed his eyebrows. I don’t think it’s an old photo.

Fashion and style distribute unevenly across the global landscape. Having observed this on trips to various parts of Europe. Where it was taken may be of big help if it is known. Also if you can find a studio or photography mark of any kind that also may be a clue.



Playing armchair analyst I'm going to say late 90s up to current depending on where it was taken. As mentioned by others it may be current if in some third world parts of the globe as often old inventory of fashions get dumped into these markets. Could be USA in an area of heavy recent immigrants who photographed at a low budget studio with older backdrop.



I'm also going to take a wild guess the boys are only one parents biological offspring or adopted as neither seem to have features of parents unless they have the proverbial generational skip of a grandparent family tree genetic branch.
