Tom Hunter’s Photographic Recreations Of Famous Paintings (NSFW)
Tom Hunter is a London based photographer known for his beautiful depictions of the ordinary life of common people. Most of his work is loosely inspired by famous masterpieces and Flavorwire recently posted a great comparison between Tom’s work and the masters that they are inspired by.
While they are not intended to be photographic reconstructions of the paintings, side by side you can see that Tom’s work draws heavily from these old masterpieces. So have a look below and let us know what you think. Tom’s work is above, followed by the painting he took inspiration from below. Have you ever tried to recreate an older work yourself? We’d love to see it, so post it in the comments section!
