Remake Project

I came across this awesome project via "A Cup Of Jo", and just had to share. The "Remake Project" challenged students to recreate famous works of art, using photography. Some of the submissions are quite compelling. A few of them made me giggle.

“Nighthawks” by Edward Hopper. Remake by Bastian Vice.

“Self Portrait 1889″ by Vincent van Gogh. Remake by Seth Johnson.

“The Girl With The Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer. Remake by Sybille de Chavagnac.

“Pot Pourri” by Herbert James Draper. Remake by Tania Brassesco and Lazlo Passi Norberto.

“Le Désespéré” by Gustave Courbet. Remake by Stefano Telloni.
“Grande Odalisque” by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. Remake by Craig White.
