What a fascinating concept. British artist Eleanor Macnair takes famous photographs and reproduces them in Play-Doh, simplifying and transforming them with vivid colour.
Original photograph: Identical Twins, Roselle, N.J., 1967 by Diane Arbus
Originally shared through Macnair’s tumblr account the project quickly spread through the internet and garnered thousands of followers on instagram.
Macnair works with simple tools; Play-Doh, a chopping board, a scalpel, and an empty wine bottle as a rolling-pin. Here’s a look at one of her works in progress.
