Photographer Recreated History’s Famous Portraits Paintings With her Creative Self-Portraits

These stunning recreations were taken from a photography series entitled ‘Stages’ by Laura Hofstadter. She learned photography in the 1970s, after graduating in biology she worked as a service writer for Stanford Medical Center’s News Service. Laura took photographs to accompany her articles, and there she decided to recreate these paintings with self-portraits. she placed herself front-and-center into various icons of Western art as an expression of her feelings growing older in a youth-obsessed society.

Each recreation is a result of dedication and hard work. Finding a perfect location or creating a set, wearing a matching costume, gathering props with the perfect combination of lighting and framing. The images were conceived with humor and playfulness through her minimal styling and manipulation.
