Me copying Rankin copying Erwin Blumenfeld…

There’s a great TV program called “Seven Photographs That Changed Fashion” where British photographer Rankin goes on a whistle-stop tour of fashion photography by recreating seven of his favourite photos. One of the pictures is a 1950 Vogue cover by Erwin Blumenfeld, and recently while doing a test shoot with makeup artist Ann-Marie Mitchell I thought it would be fun to give it a go myself.

Here’s my version plus a few other shots from the same setup, you can find the original and Rankin’s take in the links below.
