While some people are guilty of Googling before and after pictures of celebrities, I find the 'Back from the Future' project by Sander Koot far more fascinating. Each of these portraits reenact specific photos from individuals' pasts.

As opposed to just showing then and now pictures of these individuals, Sander Koot has his muses directly mimic their poses from the past. I would love to have a portrait done of me posing like this, although I may have to age a little more for it to be as entertaining as these.

Implications - Along with the prominent retro revival that has been seen in a big way recently, people and artists alike cannot resist revisiting their pasts. Products or services that allow consumers to take themselves back to a earlier era will continue to be favored as a refreshing contrast to the abundance of futuristic products.
