Eye Candy Friday: Separated at Adolescence

My assistant editor for EFC came across these photographs (via twistedsifter.com) by Irina Werning that reunite her subjects with their younger selves by crafting present day recreations of their childhood photos.  Many of them are very funny and the detail of replication is pretty spectacular in some.

Extending a thread of thought....

So Werning's project is a sort of temporal displacement of twins within a self.  This photo by André Kertész (via the very fine artboobs) projects an expression of the simultaneously conjoining of the self over and over and over again.
