The Me I Was, the Me I Will Be

Photography goes Back to the Future: Photographer Irina Werning stages photos of people several years apart. These are some fun pictures!

These pictures capture my imagination and give me some ideas for stories. I don’t know about you, but I’ve made plenty of mistakes. I’ve often wondered what would happen if I could go back… would I repeat those mistakes? What would happen?

These pictures can go two directions in time. Did that child suddenly grow old? What would an adult think in that same situation? Is this a situation similar to that portrayed in the movie Big? Or did an adult go back to their youth?

If you put them all together… has every child in the world suddenly aged to adulthood? What would that do to our society, much less other societies around the globe? Or is it the other direction – did a population jump back in time to their own youths?

Page through some of these pictures and enjoy… and wonder at the stories that each pair could hold.
