Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best and Irina Werning’s Back to the Future project is a great example of that.
Recreating old photos of people’s past, she has done an amazing job of capturing the mood and feel of the originals. I’m sure there must be other projects like this one around, but the results are amazing.
Acquiring all the clothing and accessories and finding just the right location must have been tough enough, but getting the lighting and Photoshopping it up to give it that look must have been a tough task indeed!
I find the process of looking to see what’s changed, acknowledging the similarities and differences very seductive.
