DIY Historical Photographs

To follow up on our photography history unit I'm going to ask each photo student to choose a well image from any of the photographers we discussed in class (I included the list below) and remake one of their photographs. You can use people, toys, or nature but be creative and have fun! The example above referencing Cindy Sheman's famous "untitled film still #21" is from a great article on the DIY (Do It Yourself) project from Flavorwire by Adda Birnir and Tom Starkweather.
