We Love These Photos of People Recreating Childhood Memories 20 Years Later.


In the past few years, a strange but wonderful viral trend has emerged: adults staging recreations of their own wrinkled photos from their childhood.

The trend was started back in 2010 by Argentinian photographer Irina Werning, who created the Back To The Future project as an experiment in nostalgia, placing her subjects in the exact same environment and the same clothing as their favorite childhood image. Since then, as you'll see below, many people have taken her lead and created the photos for themselves. So cool! 

1. Still ready for school, 20 years later!

2. Dads never get a break, do they?

3. Two brothers and their cousins... still complaining about having to take a bath, I'm sure.
