Back to The Future with Irina Werning

It was interesting comparing Before And After Makeup Photos done by Vadim Andreev but the greatest and the ultimate make-up artist is time. It does its job seamlessly,  and we never seem to notice the slight changes in our faces when we look at a mirror every day. Only old photographs constantly remind us that we’ve changed.

Irina Werning, a photographer born in Buenos Aires, started an interesting project called “Back to The Future” where she 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 future..by the way, this project made me realise Im a bit obsessive…
