Childhood Photos Recreated Decades Later

 

Irina Werning is a photographer from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She holds three degrees including a BA in Economics, a Masters in History and Masters in Photographic Journalism from Westminister University in London.

In her ongoing series (two parts have been completed) entitled, Back to the Future (part 1, part 2), Werning faithfully recreates childhood photos, taking great care to match the clothing, scenery and expressions. While other artists have also attempted childhood recreations, I have yet to see anyone else match the scenery and clothes as well as Irina.

The first two parts of the series have taken Irina to England, Germany, USA, the Netherlands and France (and many from her hometown of Buenos Aires). For the next installment, Werning is looking for amazing old portraits from Korea, Taiwan, Dubai and Tokyo. If you have any, be sure to send to: backtothefuturepics@ gmail.com
