Now and Then Photography

Irina Werning, a photographer from Buenos Aires, Argentina, has taken a series of old photos and then recreated them with the same persons, clothing and scenery today.

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. - via Pusha

Oh, I don't think we've sunk that low into YouTube territory.

I think the comparison is valid. One of the pictures is an exposed upper body that seems to be the main focus of the photo. While it may be acceptable for a man to be thus exposed in society, viewing pictures of shirtless men at work could raise a few eyebrows, depending on the circumstances.

At least in the accordion picture, which could be defended as "artistic", the exposure is so unobtrusive that you may not actually notice it at all. Perhaps we are becoming desensitized, like the prophets warned.

Wasn't whining, loved the photos. I loved what the artist was doing with them. Just asking for a polite label that said NSFW.

Oh, and ted, you know better. Men with shirts off is hardly risque. I would prefer a society like many I have lived in where nudity is hardly a topic, yet it is.

I have noticed that over time, many comments are turning into YouTube comments.

Interesting photos. Sure it may have been done before, but I think these were fun to see.
I love that they made the present photos resemble the old ones so much. Made me laugh a few times :D
