15+ “Baby” Photos With A Burrito - Awkward Galleries

Once you reach a certain age, usually late 20’s/early 30’s, you can’t go on social media without seeing friends’ baby photos. Comedians MK Paulsen and Ella Gale have found a way to poke fun at this aspect of modern life by posing for a photo shoot with a foil-wrapped burrito. These aren’t merely a bunch of badly lit iPhone pics, either–they teamed up with Austin-based photographer An Indoor Lady, and the results are as good as any real baby photo shoots you might see. The only quibble we have is that there’s only one burrito between the two of them. Who wants to share their burrito?

Man Photographs Trip Following In Grandparents’ Footsteps

Man Photographs Trip Following In Grandparents’ Footsteps - Awkward Galleries

Sometimes a coincidence can lead to something great. Back in 2012, a week before Christian Carollo was set to visit the Oregon Coast, he stumbled on a box of his grandparents’ vacation slides that happened to contain images of the very place he was about to visit. He saw an opportunity: why not recreate some of the photos himself? He did just that, and the response was so positive, he decided to recreate more of their travel slides from around the country. Luckily for him, his grandmother kept a travel journal that details the locations in the slides, which allows him to recreate the photos with precision.

Carollo calls his recreations the Past Present Project. But it’s more than an exercise in photo recreations–it’s also a tribute to the people who gave him his love of travel and photography.

Check out this gallery of Carollo’s recreations all around the country.
