Back to the Future: Old Photos Edition

Three friends have emailed me links to this in the past 24 hours, each with a note that says something like “ZOMG! You like old photos, so you have to check this out!” I finally did, and they were right — it’s pretty awesome. It’s a project by photographer Irina Werning, who writes:

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 future.

The results are both hilarious and revealing. I’ve included a few of my favorites below:

BENN AND DAN IN 1979 & 2010, London

TOMMY IN 1977 & 2010, Buenos Aires

PANCHO IN 1983 & 2010, Buenos Aires
