Irina Werning

'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'- Irina Werning

I really love this project, I love old photos and I'm a bit obsessed with them myself. This project really reminds me of a photo of my my Dad at some caves somewhere in Spain when he was in his late 20s, early 30s. We went back to visit the caves a few years a go and he had the same photo taken in exactly the same place. He looks the same except a little less 80s dressed and a little less hair.
