Buenos Aires-based photographer Irina Wearing has unveiled her new project, “Back to the Future,” which recreates vintage photos by placing the same [now older] subject in the same composition.
She says, “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.”
This one’s prolly my fave. Makes me wish I had a brother.
This project reminds me a bit of “The Brown Sisters” by Nicholas Nixon, which I saw at the Boston Museum of Art in the fall.
I love that this dude still has the belt buckle.
