About Back to the Future

In 2010 Argentinian photographer Irina Werning became world-famous this project, a unique photo series of people reenacting their childhood portraits. Curious about the look & feel of people 20 years after their early portraits, she took her camera and portrayed hundreds of people as they go back to their future. Irina Werning, a photographer born in Buenos Aires, started an interesting project called “Back to The Future” where she takes someone’s old childhood photo and recreates the same scene with the same person many years later. While the concept of recreated photos might not sound too complicated, she is unbelievably accurate with her photo ideas – it seems that she just found some old and young look-alikes and shot the cool photos on the same day.

About Irina Werning

I love vintage 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 then and now project. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their the way, this creative idea made me realise Im a bit obsessive…
