On the heels of her big win at Canada’s Juno Awards, Canadian indie songstress Feist has just released a video for her song “Bittersweet Melodies,” the latest off her 2011 release, Metals. Directed by Holle Singer, the video features the work of Argentine photographer Irina Werning, whose acclaimed photo essay Back to the Future captures present-day recreations of photos from the past.

“I love old photos,” Werning says. “But I love even more to recreate them. When I fall in love with a picture, I don’t stop until I have them in front of me dressed like this, doing that thing they were doing. I’m always amazed that they do it.”
