Irina Werning

16 Nov

Irina Werning, a photographer born in Buenos Aires, started an interesting project called “Back to The Future” where she takes someone’s old photo and recreates the same old scene with the same person many years later. While it might not sound too complicated, she is unbelievably accurate – it seems that she just found some old and young look-alikes and shot two pictures on the same day.

I love old photos. I admit being a nosey 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 the way, this project made me realise Im a bit obsessive…  (taken from

This project must have taken some time I believe, the images are so close to the original, I love the process Irina took, trying to really nail it on the head in each photo, much respects! Great project!

Irina Is a very talented photographer, she has many more projects under her wing, check her site HERE for proof!
