Tyler Orehek is a photographer who began his project in 2012 to “pay homage to an era long gone” by photographing his three year old son (and sometimes his even younger daughter). What makes his photography unusual is that it is historically researched and meticulously staged vintage portraiture, evoking several eras of the 20th century.
By choosing to make his kids the models, he hopes people will focus on the “essence” on each era “with greater clarity through juxtaposition.” Also, this way they aren’t distracted by those hilarious looking curly mustaches.
“Traveling Sideshow” 1900s
“Museum Curator” 1920s
“Great Depression” 1930s
“Sailor On Leave” 1940s
“Roosvelt Is Dead” 1940s
New Englander 1950s
“Private Eye” 1960s
“Roller Skates” 1970s
Actually now that I think of it, I’d really like to see that kid in a big curly mustache. (Both kids, actually.) If you dig this photographer’s time traveling, give this a share on Facebook.
