Photographer Recreates Childhood Pictures with Incredible Detail

Recreating childhood photographs have become the craze these days but you’ll never believe what one photographer was able to achieve with 25 cute childhood photos to work on.

Argentinian photographer Irina Werning pushes the limits of photography to recreate stunning images which captured the essence of the original picture – down to the vintage effect, scenery, and matching clothing and props!

The cunning resemblance of the old and new photos makes you look twice as you try to spot the difference between the two. Aptly entitled as the “Back to the Future” project, Werning truly managed to nail this project and create a stunning gallery of childhood and recreated childhood photos.

The following are some of her brilliant work.

We couldn’t agree on which photo is more scary – that of the young man or the old man pointing a gun at the photographer!
