Achraf Baznani, a photographer resident in Morocco, decided to mix his passion with nostalgia for his childhood as part of a project.
Thanks to Photoshop, he has been inlaid on the photos of his childhood, dating from 1980 to 2014, giving the impression that he is hanging out with the child as if he were friends.
“When I was looking at some old family photos, I wondered what it would look like if I could fit in with Photoshop. I collected old hats and t-shirts that I could find and did my best to show off in those moments of my childhood that are just distant memories.”
The difficulty for Achraf was to match the quality of today’s images with those of the past:”It took me to blur and sharpen a lot to make it look like an old photo”.
In the end, the result is really excellent and the photographer was surprised by the realistic rendering:”I have the impression that I and the” little me” would have got along very well”.
Here are some pictures of Achraf Baznani with the kid he was, like they were some pretty good childhood buddies:
