irina werning’s photographic reenactment

“I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.”Irina Werning

    These remind me of Tracey Moffatt’s Scarred for Life series, which I just saw at her show in Adelaide last weekend. Photographic reenactments of real childhood traumas with the images treated to look like old photos. The two series came out in ’94 and ’99, presaging the Hipstamatic thing.
