Photographer Irina Werning has long been fascinated with old photographs, especially the ones that capture the goofy poses and dated interiors.
“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,” she explains on her website.
“A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.”Her subjects dug out their old photographs, and — with a little creative staging — allowed Werning to recreate their past.The result is amazing:
GAHH, people are so funny! I love them.
Werning — who took most of these photos in London and Buenos Aries (where she’s living at the moment) — has more photos like this on her website.
ALSO:She looking for new subjects for her Back to the Future II series.If you’re in New York or Boston (in May) or in Europe (in June)
and don’t care about reliving your past,drop her a line!
BTW, she has a hilarious set of photos that she took of her friend’s hairless dog, Chini.
