Back to the future

I was nothing short of amazed when a friend sent me a link to Irina Wernings photography. In this project she invites people to step back into their past, recreating photos from their youth. Her ability to replicate fine details and facial expressions is totally uncanny.

"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. This project made me realise I'm a bit obsessive."
