Copycats

With another term of our 10 week “Advanced Photography” course due to start at Fotofilia in the next couple of weeks, I thought I’d share a few assignment submissions by last term’s victims students. The phone-taken images seen here show some of the group’s responses to their first assignment of the course where they were asked to produce a copy, update, or even humorous pastiche of a pre-existing classic photograph or painting. Firstly, Nicky made this excellent version of Lewis Morley’s 1963 portrait of Christine Keeler using a bearded male friend as her subject.

 

 

 

 

 

Michelle reproduced a Banksy piece photographically, paying special attention to the right background, flowers etc. 

 

 

 

And Agnes managed to find a subject who bore a remarkable resemblence to Greta Garbo to faithfully recreate the period image on the left.

And finally, Rob practiced his photoshop skills to create this great copy of the iconic Velvet Underground album cover by Warhol.

I was very impressed yet again by our group. I hope to share their submissions from their second (main) assignment soon.
