Irina Werning – Back to the Future

4 Jul

Irina Werning is an photographer from Argentina who works with the project “Back the Future” where she takes pictures of people in the same position as in an old photo from their where kids. She sais herself about the project; “I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.

Learn Disco Dance Diesel 78

26 May

Don’t blame it on the sunshine. Don’t blame it on the moonlight. Don’t blame it on the good times. Don’t even blame it on the boogie. Blame it on Diesel.

We thought that it was time to commemorate this disco demi-god of sexuality which is Aarlf Smaks and embrace the world of celebrity endorsement, all wrapped up in a special dance lesson remix. Enjoy. And let it be a lesson to you.

Oh, and by the way, Aarlf’s footwear was just as ahead of its time as his dance maneuvers, we give you, The Diesel Freezy Sneakers.
