Do you like taking a walk back memory lane? Then you might like Argentinian photographer Irina Werning’s Back to the Future photographic series. She recreates childhood photographs of adults with such an eye for detail – right from the bad lighting, the wardrobes down to the props. You can only imagine the amount of work needed to get all of that so perfect.

Already in his mid-thirties and as established figure in the Japanese creative world, Nobuyoshi Araki undertook a pseudo-photographic documentary project “starring” a girl he met in real life, whose character moves from the southern island of Kyushu to the bright lights of Tokyo. Look at more pictures and follow the photographic tale of one woman’s struggles in Tokyo, circa 1977 on We Heart.

I wish we’d still be sending those handwritten letters on carefully selected postcards, so personal and yet not-so-personal at the same time.

John Hinde is an Englishman whose career in photography began long before the days of Photoshop and airbrushing. He started off as a defense photographer during the Second World War. Later, along with his wife Jutta and a lot of passion for art and a flair for design, the couple went on to document stunning postcard scenes from around the world. Hinde was involved in every bit of his symbolic snapshots, right from conceptualising to printing. His previous work in printing helped him to create pictures with high colour saturation. Hinde went on to print more than 32 million colour postcards by 1966, which were sold all over the world.

Reminiscing through these pictures, a quaint, pure and nostalgic image of London conjures in my mind. That is why I love old photographs, as I’ve said before here and here.

FOUND is a curated collection of some stunning photography from the archives of National Geographic, most of which were never published or were hardly seen by people. These photographs uncover the cultures and moments of the past in true Nat Geo style, encapsulating beauty that was possibly lost to the outside world for ages. There is always something so beautiful about an old photograph that speaks silent incredible stories of a totally new world.
