Argentine photogtrapher woman "Irina Werning" initiated her photographing project (BACK TO THE FUTURE) in early 2010, which is still going on so far.
Her project concluded in visiting people in their homes and choose old photos from their photos archives, whether from childhood images or images in young adulthood for the elderly and re-capture their owners in the same scene after being grown up. Next first image (CECILE) from France in 1987 and the other in 2010.
The photographers tend to define the photographic image as the moment in which the time stop to capture that moment by the camera lens but the point which is interesting in this project is to re-capture the moment after a long period of time to the same people and the same places to see how it changed people by the passage of time and the variation trends of the moments that captured them a long time ago.

The photographer Says, that she likes to see the reaction of people when they ask them to re-enacting what they were doing when they were young, so she made them to "return to the future" through her own photographing project. She published these photos in her personal website in order to make people send their past and present photos. You can access to her website here.
