Way back in 2009 when I was studying digital photography and editing at the International Center of Photography I was tasked to create a project that culminated in 6 unique images.
Leaning on my Art History degree and passion for NYC and its museums, I decided to re-create some iconic paintings from incredible artists. It was a lot of fun, recruiting some of my friends to help pose for me, and then applying my newly acquired Photoshop skills to edit them! (Spoiler: I received an A!)
In the past few weeks, during this coronavirus pandemic where almost everything is closed to the public, I’ve noticed some of my favorite museums in the world challenging their followers on Instagram to re-create paintings in a similar task, and it brought back great memories. I dug out my old hard drives from years past and dusted these off to share with you!
