An Argentinian photographer has people reliving snapshots of their pasts, recreating every colour, every prop, every expression in a series that has taken her around the world.
Irina Werning says her project, entitled Back to the Future, was born from her curiosity about old photos, though she calls it something else on her website.
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… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.
Werning recreates baby pictures, school photos and moments of domestic life, often based on photos from decades prior, even when that involves posing everyone who appeared in the original image.
