Artist of the Week - Irina Werning
I bloody love this project. Irina Werning loves old photos. So what he/she's done (I'm so sorry but I have no idea what gender they are) is get people to re-sit for the identical photo now that they're older. The effect is amazing! Check out more pics on the website here.
Oddly enough, my photographer brother Simon and I did something similar back in 2002. Here are two photos of him with his childhood monkey toy just 30-something years apart. We didn't get the pose exactly right as we were doing it from memory. But fun all the same.
