Playful Play-Doh Remakes of Famous Photographs

Fun, art-friendly Tumblr alert: Eleanor Macnair’s Photographs Rendered in Play-Doh. Famous snaps by Diane Arbus, Julia Margaret Cameron, William Eggleston, and more get the Play-Doh treatment. Jean-Paul Goude’s iconic image of a sleek Grace Jones in an impossible arabesque (copied by Nicki Minaj in her “Stupid Hoe” video) becomes outsider art when composed with kid’s modeling clay. And what’s not to love about the spaghetti (worm) hair in the remake of Joseph Szabo and Man Ray’s photos? See more Play-Doh creations, which we first glimpsed on Lost at E Minor, below.
