Back to the Future: Photographer Irina Werning Recreates Stunning Photos From Various People’s Childhood

Argentinian photographer Irina Werning has been making extremely accurate recreations of people's childhood photos with her project “Back to the Future”, an ongoing photo series that began in 2011.

Werning's retro-looking photos are re-creations of ones taken in past moments of people's lives, and they are simply a “celebration of old pictures.”

The idea for “Back to the Future” was formulated when Werning was scanning old photos from a wedding of one of her friends' parents. She noticed one photo in particular of her friend's mother and immediately fell in love with it.

“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…”
