When the pandemic forced us into isolation, many of us had to find new ways to pass the time and new subjects to photograph. Lithuanian photographer Justinas Stonkus is not an exception. When the pandemic hit, he had to find a replacement for his photography gigs without leaving home – and so he did. With his girlfriend and two cats, Justinas recreated famous artworks in a series of brilliant and often funny photos.
I’ve said this a hundred times, but I simply love stop-motion videos. And if they can make me smile, I love them even more. Artist and animator Warren Wright has created a series of such videos, and they’ve made my day today. He uses Barbie dolls and stop-motion animation to recreate iconic movie scenes and music videos. Step aside, Madonna, Barbie’s taking over!
Photographer Drew Gardner recreates portraits of some of the most famous historic figures, but not with just anyone. He photographs their direct descendants and recreates the iconic portraits to the finest details. One of the latest recreations he made was done with Shannon LaNier, a news anchor, an author, and the sixth great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson.
During these self-isolation days, there have been all sorts of challenges on social media. To be quite honest, most of them annoy the hell out of me, but I have finally found one that I really, really like. Getty Museum in L.A. has recently challenged its followers on Twitter to recreate their favorite artwork at home. The results quickly came coming in, and they’re as funny as it gets.
Even if you have a limited budget, you can still recreate the look of some famous movies and TV shows if you have enough imagination. But guys from Studio 188 are taking these recreations to a whole new (and utterly hilarious) level. They create low-budget trailers for famous movies and TV series. Actually, zero-budget could be a better description, since they use nothing but household items and their imagination. Terminator 2, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, you name it – they can recreate it, and make you laugh out loud when you see the result.
Whether or not you like Salvador Dali’s work, it’s hardly possible you haven’t seen one of the most famous photos of him: Dali Atomicus. It’s on the TIME’s list of 100 most influential photos of all time. It was a result of collaboration between Salvador Dali and photographer Philippe Halsman and it was captured in 1948.
In 2017, almost 70 years later, photographer Karl Taylor has recreated this iconic image with modern tools and gear. Still, he remained faithful to the original and didn’t use Photoshop make the objects float. Just like in the 1948 photo – all the objects are suspended with wires. He shares the story of recreating this famous photo, and it was such a big project that even BBC documented it.
We’ve featured plenty of stunning photo recreations so far. But this time, I’ve stumbled upon one such project that will make your day better. It’s about a cute toddler recreating model photos of his uncle. It all started as a family jok and turned into a project that’s cute and hilarious at the same time.
