I am going to stage photographs to pay homage to famous paintings. I want to bring these paintings to life. Costumes, sets are needed.
I have always wanted to take the work of the masters and put my own spin on it while paying tribute to them.
This idea started with the idea of doing an urban version of American Gothic. Instead of a farm and a pitchfork, it would be a brownstone and a bat. I wanted to take that type of interpretation to the next level and try it with other paintings and have a very unique collection.
I want to show the beauty and emotion of the masters with settings and people that the contemporary audience will connect with.
This collection will have 15-20 images.
This project requires backers because there will be a need to get costumes and sets that I don't have access to currently.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
