OK, so he’s not exactly eligible to enter our blog’s customer photo competition; but we couldn’t resist sharing this photo of customer Lisa Conway’s kitty, Teddytails, working an Anna Scholz look in his own way!

The Test of Time: Irina Werning goes Back to the Future

February 21st, 2011 10:00 am

Buenos Aires-based photographer, Irina Werning has started an ongoing series of photographs called “Back to the Future” in which she has subjects re-enact childhood photographs. The clothing and backgrounds are amazingly and painstakingly re-created. Faces may change over time, but certain qualities of appearance and personality always shine through.

“I love old photos,” Irina writes on her website. “I admit being a nosy 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… by the way, this project made me realise I’m a bit obsessive…”
