  1. Nice post, often I have thought of doing a homage to works I enjoy from masters and in a way it's a lot different from covering a famous song but also similar because of comparisons between the original and the new version. I don't think large corporations should be paying photographers to copy another's work though surly their money should be all about creativity - playing it safe under the wing of a past great is not very admirable. Who too the photos and elwere they directed to do so or were they just out of ideas? Thanks for the post it's really great and I love te Pravda fur hat - very well even better then hoppers version , ever so slightly.
