Photographer Irina Werning mined a little piece of popular art culture gold when she surmised the simple and seemingly obvious idea for her photo-series titled ‘Back to the Future’. The ‘seemingly obvious’ idea (that you wish was yours) is that by using an old photograph of her subject as a marker to help her restage the exact same environment and expression of the subject allows for a humorous and sometimes inquisitive examination of what really happens as we mature into adulthood.
