  1. Love this photo spread! Very clever on the photographers part. Plus, I love the play on perspective in this.

  7. at what point are we going to start understanding that 'referncing' another photographer isn't necessarily a 'copy'? i'm quite sure the photographer is aware of their allusion and probably imagines that at least a portion of the audience will understand as well.

  9. MKL: that would make sense if this photographer mentioned in the beginning of the spread that he took inspiration from Bourdin. If there is no note of this then how are we supposed to know that he wasn't just trying to fool the viewer into thinking that these are his original ideas?

  11. This is insanely amazing! I love Guy Bourdins work and obviously this is referencing that. A great modern take on Bourdin, really interesting backgrounds.
