Using the work of renowned photographers like Cindy Sherman, Diane Arbus, and Alfred Stieglitz, artist Eleanor Macnair creates something of her own — and she does it all using Play-Doh. Macnair reimagines timeless photography by creating a similar image, only with kids’ favorite molding clay, creating work that is simultaneously whimsical and artistically impressive. What were once serious black and white photographs transform into quirky 3D scenes, extending the ways in which the image can be interpreted. Each of Macnair’s pieces takes between 3-4 hours to complete, and after she documents them she balls up the Play-Doh for further use. You can see her work in the images below.
