Amazing Then and Now Retro Photo Project

Amazing Then and Now Retro Photo Project

Irina Werning, a photographer from Buenos Aires has started a “then & now” project that aims to compare people with their childhood photos, attempting to capture the same image many years later with the same retro look.

Werning says she’s fascinated by the retro pictures and wondered ”how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today “, and a few months ago, she decided to actually do it.  This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this type of oldschool/current day match-ups but we think these are the best we’ve seen yet. Werning has clearly done a great job of matching the tones and highlights of each image. It may even inspire you to try one yourself.
