Back to the Future

It's been more than a year since I first saw this series of photos by Irina Werning but I am still mesmerized and delighted by them. Isn't the top one of so beautiful? (She reminds me of Anne Frank in some way, so it makes me feel a little sad. If only Anne had been able to sit for a retake of her famous photo as an older woman.) And then there's the second set – how hysterical to see that grown man recreating his baby faces. And look how similar he still looks to his old self! I bet his mother treasures this collection.

I would love to do this with my family of origin and with my own children. I'm putting it on my "list" right now!

You can see more images from this series here and here. They are just wonderful and the photographer does such a beautiful job of carefully and precisely recreating the details of each image.


  1. Oh my gosh... these are wonderful. You're right... the detail and photo quality is amazing. I guess Argentina was big on putting glasses on babies for photos. he he (Found this post via LinkWithin) :)

    1. Tracy - Aren't those photos cool. Doesn't that make you want to do that with Macy?! I keep trying to get my girls to pose like their baby pix - I need to find similar clothes and stuff too though to make them as great as this guy's.


Thank you for your comments. Hearing from you makes my day!
