We’re all aware of getting older and may obsess over how our bodies gradually change with the years. Have you ever wanted to step back a few years and reconnect with a younger self? Would it be amusing or just plain creepy? Back to the Future is a book by Argentinean photographer Irina Werning, who takes old pictures and then mimics them years later with the subjects dressed, styled, and posed exactly as they were in the original. The results are quirky and a fascinating insight into the aging process. Surprisingly, the subjects often slip seamlessly into their old persona, so that even though their physical appearance may have changed, the spirit is still plainly the same.
