Back to the (photographic) Future

February 22, 2012

After Stephan’s post appeared on the blog yesterday, it reminded me of an amazing project called Back to the Future (and part 2) by Argentinian photographer, Irina Werning.

By taking a photograph from your childhood, she attempts to recreate the photo with extreme attention to detail. The surroundings, clothes, positioning and facial expressions are all carefully put together to capture that exact moment from your past, in what was your future.

Another couple to note are a ‘do it yourself’ project called ‘Young Me/Now Me‘ where you can submit your own attempts at re-enacting your favourite childhood memory and Dear Photograph (below), a blog where you take a photo of an old photo that is perfectly lined up with the original photo’s setting (make sense?).
