You can be a troll expert while mastering Photoshop or you can travel in time and hang out with yourself when you were a kid. This freaking awesome gentleman did just that and results are mind-blowing. Montreal-based photographer Conor Nickerson injected himself into his own childhood photos from 1997-2005 and the force of nostalgia can’t be any stronger than what came out of this project. “While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to Photoshop myself today into them,” Conor writes. “I gathered all the old hats and t-shirts that I could find and did my best to put myself into childhood moments which, aside from these photos, remain only a distant memory.” Conor had to conquer the art of matching new photos with a quality of old ones. “It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo. Editing the pictures and looking at them so closely for so long takes a bit away from the shock value, but seeing the final images all together definitely is a bit strange! I feel like me and little me would have gotten along pretty alright.” You can read more about this project on his Facebook page.
