For his photo series, a British photographer recreated some murals by famed street artist Banksy with the help of some models and carefully selected props and costumes. Take a look at some of them and decide if you love the idea!

Intrigued by the work of celebrated UK street artist Banksy, accomplished news and features photographer Nick Stern sought to recreate some of his most popular stencils and murals on camera.
