author's comments:
I had wanted to take a photo of my son standing on my hand just the way I had
stood on my dad’s hand as a baby. My wife snapped the photo and we were amazed
at how much I resembled my dad in pose in that 40 year time warp. I will note that
although my dad was holding me up in the air outside along the side of a road, I was
holding my son, Warren, over a soft bed!

Perhaps I should have posted this in the photography / artwork forums? Who am I kidding? I'd have had less replies there than I do now (pauses __).

Moving on and back up... I came across this photo, which I'm sure relates and ties back into the website itself.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it, NoSoup, as not only was the premise great, but some of the portrayals sent in by ordinary folk - it's just outstadning the amount of fun each and every one of them have etched on their faces to re-create an earlier monet in their own histories.

Here's one more to leave you with...



attached along with a personal note:
my father was career military and in the first photo he was stationed in germany. my parents have had this photo hanging on a wall in their den for years. we decided to recreate the photo and sneak the copy into the frame to see how long it would take for them to notice.

we went to thrift stores for our outfits…it was actually snowing lightly and we were freezing during the recreation….we had to try several times because we could not stop laughing.

the recreation was taken around thanksgiving….when my aunt came to visit for christmas, she noticed it immediately – i don’t think my parents would have noticed it for a long time.

Just a question for you, Xerxys: what,s the above supposed to be about, really?
I can see the older/younger comparison alright, though, but the initial basis for this was the website itself, and childhood ties, and recreating a specific photograph's scenarion, taken by ordinary folks, so there is a sort of big disparate disconnect from what was intended to what you have come to feature now.

It's a not knock, and I virtually appreciate any thought-out response to some of shares, but this one leaves me scratching my head, wondering if I left the concept's basis too nebulous, and you misunderstood or something.

according to Melinda:
As we got older, he was definitely the cool one of the bunch, Mr. Popular.
I was always so proud to be able to tell everyone that he was my cousin.

Funny that this thread would pop back up as I just found this picture on my sister's Facebook page...



That is myself and my two siblings with 18 years between the two photos.

Flor in 1975 & 2010, Buenos Aires.

follow-up: more from Irina Werning's latest series, BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning

author's comments:
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.

Sorry no camera when I was hanging from my belt off a bridge over rapids. And that really is the perfect picture to represent my life.

My father and his three year older brother were photographed when my dad was one year old. My aunt's (dad's sister) two sons are three years apart as well, and she took a similarly set photo of her sons than what was taken of her brothers 40+ years earlier. Younger boy sitting in a small chair and older one kneeling beside the other.

(it did ; of course, the question begs of why would I create a thread of a photo-concept project that's based nearly entirely in childhood memories and portfolios, if it wasn't? Rhetorical, I know.
I should have just quit at two words. Sorry.
