Irna Werning : Photographer
Series: Back to the Future
Back to the Future constructs a perceivable time jump into the subject's life, recreating past moments into the present. Seemingly causal snapshots are given new meaning in their time capsule embodiment. In a flash children in grass skirts become women and a young couple grows old together in another. The most striking awareness comes not from the very apparent aging of people, but from the timeless feeling within the photograph. While the wrinkles and tattoos are new the smiles, attitudes, and that immortal sense of self are still the same which begs me to ask the question, "Do we really ever change?"
