Irina Werning has done something we’d all like to do. She has mined the photo albums of friends and family in Buenos Aires, and brought childhood photographs to life. Her series, Back to the Future, is a fascinating look at aging, and while her subjects morph and change into adults, they stay very much the same. She had done an amazing job of replicating the original childhood outfit and location.
Born in Buenos Aires, Irina earned an BA Economics, Universidad de San Andres, Buenos Aires, an BA Economics, Universidad de San Andres, Buenos Aires, and an MA Photographic Journalism, Westminster University, London. In 2006, she won the Ian Parry Scholarship and Gordon Foundation Grant.
