This is an example from a series of photographs called 'Back to the Future' taken by the very skilled photographer from Buenos Aires, Irina Werning. There are too many for me to post here but if you drop by the site I'm sure you'll be as delighted as I was to see the amazing care she's taken to replicate as exactly as possible pictures taken of people many years ago. The remarkable similarities go a long way to show our looks don't really change as much as we might think.
It seems she began the project when ZeFrank offered a contest called 'Young Me Now Me' for a book they were planning. Some of the pictures there are neat but nothing quite up to Irina's obsessive standards. Still, it might be fun to try. All you do is find a photo from when you were young and recreate it as closely as possible. Sounds easy, doesn't it?
