Photo History 1

In the process of growing a beard for 4 months during the now defunct but previously biennial Whiskerino, One of the series that I created that is dear to my heart is the Photo History Monday. I sought to weekly and faithfully recreate important photographs in the history of photography (the format might differ because all photographs had to be horizontal with a 4x3 aspect ratio).

Here are the fruits of that labor. If you wish to see my commentary on these photos or the other photographs...check out the above link and look for "Shotgun Willie" (or click here)

Enjoy. (click titles to see original photo)
