Ever wondered what it would be like to revisit your childhood scenes as an adult? Photographer Irina Werning from Bueons Aires, Argentina, is doing almost that. In her “Back to the Future” photography project, Werning is recreating childhood photos by positioning their protagonists in the exact same scenery, wardrobe and atmosphere, but this time as grown ups. The result is fascinating, and not only thanks to the vintage charm of the old photos. The juxtaposition of the two images highlights the child within the adult. These two photo-instances tell a life story of a person, and Werning’s remarkable talent allows us to have a glimpse at that story.
If you want to create your own “Back to the Future” photo, you can share it on the Young Me blog. It will definitely bring back some great childhood memories.
While on the topic of photo remakes, you can still submit your photos to Wix’s Art:Reloaded photo remake challenge. The challenge ends on Feb 29 and we’re giving away an iPad to the best photo remake of a famous painting, album or magazine cover. If you’re looking for some information, you can see some of the awesome submissions we already received from Wix users here.
