Back to the Future

Not that one.

Back to the Future is Irina Werning's project, taking photographs in 2010/2011 that are as-authentic-as-possible "copies" of those taken twenty, thirty years ago--same person, different age.  I'm sure many of you are familiar with by now.

The poses/figures are all strikingly well-executed. Some of the clothing and objects are SPOT ON recreations, some are successfully similar, some are the exact same object or garment.

What does this say, tell us, suggest about recreation? Of situations, clothing, objects, history?
