What would it be like to meet your childhood self? Until time travel is invented, we’ll probably never know. But Montreal-based photographer Conor Nickerson used a handy little time machine called Photoshop to travel back in time photographically and hang out with his younger self. He photoshopped his present self into his childhood photos from 1997-2005, and by the looks of it, he’s done a fine job.
The idea came to Conor when he was browsing through some old photos and wondered what it would be like if he photoshopped himself into them. He gathered his old hats and t-shirts and decided to give it a shot. The biggest challenge he faced was matching the quality of the new photos to the old ones. “It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo,” says Conor. Check out the project below.
