Back to the Future.
Photographer Irina Werning started having people re-enact old photos of themselves, emulating the look and feel of the original in her process. Here’s what Irina has to say about the project:
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.
The photograph above, of a young Christoph chipping away at the Berlin Wall and his current self chipping away at the air, was particularly striking to me. See more of her images in the two appropriately-named galleries on her website: “Back to the Future” and “Back to the Future 2.”
