Artist, photographer and baker extraordinaire Christine McConnell (christinehmcconnell.com) has recreated six generations of her ancestors portraits, following her maternal line back nearly two hundred years to hear Great-great-great-grandmother Martha, who was born in 1821.
The attention to detail in this photo series is fantastic as McConnell successfully recreates the look, feel and wardrobe of each woman. For more inspiring creativity from this multi-talented artist, check her out at the links below.
