art replication assignment – second photograph

much like the first image for this assignment (which is here), the idea was to take a well known painting, and replicate it by adding a contemporary twist.

the painting i chose was “the scream”, by edvard munch :

edvard munch - the scream

the idea for this was to replace the background in the painting with shocking, scary and thought provoking headlines from various newspapers. i feel this replaces what the subject was hearing in the original painting very well.

this shot is actually (probably) the final photo i will use, and isn’t digital (for details on what camera etc i used see alt text).
