Back to the Future

Photographer Irina Werning has an interest in old photos. So, she’s been working on a project lately where she gets people to re-enact old photographs by going back to where they were taken in the same clothes and strike the same pose:

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.

Above are her parents in Buenos Aires in 1970 and again in 2010. Below are Benn and Dan in London in 1979 and 2010.
