irina werning

So I recently started using (read: became obsessed with) StumbleUpon as a useful way to eat into the chasm of time that has become my life of late. While I am trying to convince myself that it is research and cultural development, in reality it is turning out to be another way to add to the already too long list of blogs I read…

However this afternoons Stumbling session reaped something wonderful: Irina Werning.

An Argentinian photographer, Irina Werning’s latest project Back to the Future sees her recreate  people’s childhood photographs, capturing not only the physicality of the original photograph but also the individual personalities that have been preserved in time, resulting in a surprisingly eerie but amazing series of photographs.

And also, somewhat heartbreaking when you realise how so much yet so little can change as the years go by:
