Back to the Future by Irina Werning

Have you ever wondered how much you’ve aged or how you would feel and look if you were to reenact the old photos today?

Irina Werning, a photographer born in Buenos Aires, started “Back to The Future” project that features a collection of her photographs of individuals and groups of people reenacting a photograph that was taken in the past. While it might not sound too complicated, she is undeniably accurate. Research, locations and props for each and every shoot – even time and money has been put towards finding the same (or similar) object in the background, such as clothes or furniture so it looks like the picture was taken during the same day.

I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future..by the way, this project made me realise Im a bit obsessive…

Check out wonderful work of Irina Werning.
