Eleanor Macnair recreates famous artworks with Play-Doh and a camera #celebratephotography

NewImage

From My Modern Met:

Eleanor Macnair recreates art history using a material that’s meant for children. Inspired by the images of renowned photographers like Cindy Sherman, Alfred Stieglitz, and Diane Arbus, the London-based artist reimagines their timeless works as 3D sculptures crafted with colorful Play-Doh.

When Macnair translates the source images into clay, it changes more than just their appearance—it completely alters the mood of the photographs. Somber black-and-white pictures become vibrant compositions and inevitably take on a more cheerful tone, even when the pieces do not call for it. In this way, Macnair explores—and extends—the emotional range of the original photographs, transforming them in ways never before imagined.
