    This thread is for posting photos that are in the style or or remind you of work by your favorite photographers and artists, maybe even writers.

    I call this photo "Harry Callahan", because it reminds me of a color photo by Callahan titled "Atlanta, 1990". His photo is of a staple encrusted telephone pole, and has a similar composition.

    The props, poses, and composition here was influenced not only by Grant Wood's 'American Gothic' painting, but also the paintings of pioneers and settlers by Thomas Hart Benton.

    Do you know how much these types of cameras are usually worth now?

    $5 to $35 depending on the condition. There are some that are more collectable than others, and if you had packaging, instruction manuals, etc... that would increase value.

    That's right, Choose a pic by a more or less famous photographer and make your own version! And pah-lease post the original as well!
    I shall start with my own: a remake of Nickolas Muray's (forgot the title...)
    maybe you've seen it in the artsy farts self-portraits...
    So come on, post'em, I know you're full of ideas!
    AH! and Meysha! Shall you post your version :thumbup: ?

    k, here it goes:

    I could be wrong, but I believe this theme is already in existence...I'll try and find it.
