The photography series 'You Are Not Banksy' by Nick Stern brings the infamous street artist's most prominent works into reality. Stern is an internationally recognized photographer who specializes in journalistic captures for magazines and news stories.

Although Stern is familiar with shooting the realities around the world, his latest project turns the lens onto a new form of street culture.

Using models, props and street backdrops, Stern captures the essence of Banksy's work in a living and breathing form. Some of the notable allusions include 'Flower Power' and the 'Kissing Policemen.'

You Are Not Banksy by Nick Stern is an interesting take on one of the most celebrated and wanted street artists around.
