In a new photography project, Robin Roemer photographs YouTube stars as popular Hollywood icons, showing their unique spirit of today's celebrities in the context of retro Hollywood glam.

The creator explains the project by stating entertainment is becoming a more accessible and digestible outlet, where the stars of today are more familiar and attainable to us in a way that has never been seen before. The purpose of the project is to capture today's most familiar form of celebrity, in this case the YouTube creator, and capture them in an analog way.

They've been depicted as stars that have lived through the Golden Age of media, while as we move further into the age of the Internet, today might as well be the Renaissance of that era.
