This is Christine H. McConnell and she can time travel.. Well, sort of. A recently unveiled project by the 33 Year Old photographer includes portrait work that is heavily influenced by her ancestors. She says the idea came to her when her mother gave her one of her dresses. Her mother was photographed in the dress, and it inspired her to recreate the photo herself. Having always grown up surrounded by family portraits and tales of her ancestry, it wasn’t long before she took to recreated some other portraits too.
