Photo Study: Irina Werning’s Back to the Future

LUCIA IN 1956 & 2010, Buenos Aires by Irina Werning

SUE IN 1977 & 2010 , London by Irina Werning

These are images from Irina Werning‘s series entitled Back to the Future. Absolutely beautiful narrative style in these juxtapositions, and really highlights the humanity that these portraits are so instilled with; even with each portrait component standing alone.

FLOR, MALE, SIL IN 1983 & 2010 by Irina Werning

What we love about this series is the sense of surrealism that accompanies each pair. After closer scrutiny, the series begins to turn into a “can you spot the difference,” which is definitely a playful nod to the subtleness of the compositional changes from the past and present. Wonderful series!

We’ve attempted to contacted Irina for some more information on the process, so hopefully this photo study will have a part 2 very soon!
