Back to the Future

Yesterday, a friend passed along to me a photo series entitled Back to the Future and it blew my mind.  I have no doubt it will do the same for you.  Photographer Irina Werning of Argentina collected old photos and recreated them (pretty damn well) in an ongoing photo series she started in 2010.  She says this project made her realize how obsessive she is.  You kind of have to be obsessive to recreate these old photos as accurately as she did.  I’m still trying to figure out how she found identical clothes and accessories for these reproductions, some taken over 50 years later.  Do these photos make you want to dust off your old albums to see if you can recreate any of your own gems?

How hilarious do those two men look in the bathtub?
