I adore the romance and retro innocence of 'Akiko' by Karl Villamora. I take a look at these overexposed photos and recall a forgotten time where train travel was the elegant norm and a handheld valise was the only luggage option.

Implications - Photos that are imbued with a sense of nostalgia hark back to a simpler time. Nostalgia, for many consumers, is a powerful and persuasive force. Companies should harness the potential of nostalgia in their ad campaigns to appeal to these consumers and create brand loyalty.
