20 Artistic & Parody Photography Recreations

 - Feb 7, 2009
From Jessica Simpson recreating an Esquire magazine cover with Italian actress Virna Lisi and James Corden as sexy stripped David Beckham to Julianne Moore bringing iconic paintings to life for Harper’s Bazaar, photographic recreation is the hottest thing in fashion and pop culture magazines these days.

Vanity Fair recreated iconic Hitchcock movie posters and scenes with Hollywood stars such as Jodie Foster, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellweger, and Gwyneth Paltrow. And we can’t forget Lindsay Lohan’s infamous recreation of Marlin Monroe’s ‘Last Sitting’ photoshoot. This recreation itself got spoofed with another recreation by Michael Musto as Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe…

Whether it is a genuine act of paying homage to iconic paintings and photos or an easy way for lazy fashion editors, art directors and photographers to come up with shoots that will grab people’s attention, photographic recreation has been on the rise.

Check out the cluster below for recent examples of these recreations.
