Famous Art Remade into Photographs

2012-01-06 1

Look what we’ve found! A UK based photo competition asked students to recreate/reinterpret famous works of art in photograph form. It’s called ‘The Booooooom + Adobe Remake photo project’ and took place last year. Though it’s over, the submissions galley was astounding, and we just had to share them with you!

Here are the modern, recreations of the famous artworks below. Scroll through the submissions, first, before viewing the below gallery of originals. Can you peg each one of them? We think they are pretty darn accurate!

The list of artworks in order:
“The Two Fridas” by Frida Kahlo, “Weeping Woman” by Picasso, “Self Portrait 1889″ by Vincent Van Gogh, “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp” by Rembrandt, ‘Le Désespéré’ by Gustave Courbet, “Bedroom in Arles” by Vincent Van Gogh, “Composition With Red, Blue and Yellow” by Piet Mondrian, “Las Meninas” by Diego Velasquez, “Luncheon on the Grass” by Édouard Manet, “Portrait of the Actress Jeanne Samary” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, “Birth of Venus” by Botticelli, and “Nighthawks” by Edward Hopper.

The closeups, that depict facial expressions, such as in “Le Désespéré”, “Portrait of the Actress Jeanne Samary”, and “Self Portrait 1889", are great as not only do they capture the scene and colors of the paintings, but so too do they capture the expressions and emotions the pieces put across.

And the winner is…
