Photographer takes vintage photos ‘Back to the Future’!

You know those old baby and childhood photographs…we all have them. The ones where you are trying on mom’s shoes, or dad’s hat; the ones with the glasses, dresses or knee socks that completely date the photo…

Irina Werning Back To  The Future 2

It’s always fun to look at them and imagine the person older. One intrepid photographer has done just that and more!

In her ‘Back to the Future‘ and ‘Back to the Future 2’ projects Irina Werning has meticulously recreated old photographs placing the now older model in exactly the same clothing and places as in the original photograph. She has taken great care to recreate the quality of the photograph as well, adding scratches and fading where appropriate.

What a unique photo exhibit and how fun to take adults and recreate childhood photographs! These aren’t the old photographs you want to hide away…these are ones to be proudly displayed, and giggled over!
