Back to the Future
Argentinian photographer Irina Werning is obsessed with nosing into peoples lives: “I love old photos. I admit being a nosy 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… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.”
Luckily she knows to transform her obsession into beautiful and amazing photographs, like her ongoing series Back to the Future. Masterfully staged (like all her series by the way) she invited people to reenact childhood photographs. The result is as much comical as it is astonishing, how little some people seem to change.
