Artist Perfectly Recreates Old Photos, Adding A Little Bit Of Her Own Imagination


Have you ever found photos of your grandparents from way back in the day and wondered what they were like back then or what stories they had to tell? Judging by these images, Jane Long, a Brisbane-based photographer, can relate.

According to Long, her project Dancing with Costică started when, after deciding to brush up on her retouching skills, she accidentally came across the Costică Acsinte Archive on Flickr. Long was so fascinated by it that she decided to bring the archive's photos to life.

"I will probably never know the real stories of these people but in my mind they became characters in tales of my own invention," Long explained in the statement she sent to A+. "Star-crossed lovers, a girl waiting for her lover to come home, boys sharing a fantasy, innocent children with a little hint of something dark."

What stories do you see behind these photos?
