Back to The Future with Irina Werning (Part II)

Do you remember Irina Werning and her cool project called “Back to The Future” we’ve posted earlier? Well, it appears that Irina hasn’t stopped there and released the part II of her series.

A photographer born in Buenos Aires takes someone’s old photo and recreates the same old scene with the same person many years later. While it might not sound too complicated, she is unbelievably accurate – it seems that she just found some old and young look-alikes and shot two pictures on 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 the way, this project made me realize I’m a bit obsessive…” says the artist.
