Irina Werning - Back To The Future

Irina Werning is an Argentine photogapher who set up a project to recreate nostalgic photos from the past and post them into the present.

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… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.

Back to the Future has expanded into a second set for 2011 and C4 have comissioned a short documentary to be broadcast on The shooting Gallery
