Photo remakes are a unique form of artwork that is receiving a growing recognition lately. It draws inspiration from a known piece (mostly paintings, but also sculpture and photography), and sets out to reconstruct that piece as a photo. The purpose is not so much to create an identical copy of the original, but to recreate its mood, and sometimes to add a layer of personal interpretation.
Although photo remakes are based on works that already exist, it would be very wrong to doubt their status as artworks in their own right. Creating a powerful remake requires not only a great deal of technical precision, but also a clear artistic vision and talent, as you’ll see in this stunning showcase.
