Brazilian photographer Irina Werning's ongoing project Back to the Future is a nostalgic gem. Taking an old photograph from her subject's family album she recreates their portrait in astonishing detail:
[pullquote author="Irina Werning"]I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.

I had no idea he was a prolific photographer, I thought that was just a role he played in Apocalypse Now!
