Photographer Re-creates Old Photos of Her Ancestors

Photographer Christine McConnell traces her lineage in a unique project that recreates photos of the past. She reproduced old portraits of the women in her family on her maternal side, with one major difference —  Christine reproduced them with herself as the subject. This creative twist means that she meticulously matched the attire, hairstyle, and the aged look of the photo.
