Some time ago, Booooooom creator Jeff Hamada asked the internet to join in on an art challenge to recreate their favourite old master paintings as contemporary photographs. This sparked many professional and amateur artists to create elaborate sets, paint their bodies, paint their friends' bodies, and take their own shot at works by artists from Dali to Magritte. This collection has now taken the form of a book and features side-by-side page layouts of a selection of works from the original contest.
What would it be like to step inside Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring or Hopper's Nighthawks? That's exactly what more than fifty modern-day photographers, artists, students, and creatives have done within the pages of Remake. What started as an online collaborative project launched by leading art blog Booooooom.com and quickly became an internet sensation is now a one-of-a-kind book. Remake gathers fantastic reinterpretations of fifty beloved art masterpieces. Each canonical artwork is presented side-by-side with its contemporary re-do-calling out the striking similarities between them and the fun (often hilarious) creative choices that make each version unique.
