Photographer and Stylist Christine McConnell, creates photographs of herself next to her ancestors, going back almost 200 years.  It apparently all started with a dress, her mother gave her early last year that she wore in a painting, that was hanging up in their home for the last 25 years.  At the time her mother was 32 which is also Christine's age now.  She decided to recreate that photograph of her mother's and got the idea to go back in time to recreate her earlier ancestors as well.
