Photographer Recreates Old Photos to Startling Effect

Ballerina Back to the Future
Irina Werning

How often do we stare longingly at old photos wishing that we could relive the most memorable moments of our lives? Probably not that often. But photographer Irina Werning pretty much did just that.

She began a photo project in 2010 called ‘Back to the Future,’ where she tracked down the subjects of old photos to recreate them in the exactly same poses, clothes, location and everything. It’s startling how well she captures the feel of the original photos. We might not ever be able to go back in time, but at least we can pretend.

Check out some of our favorites and find the rest here.
