In Need Of A Good Laugh Today? – Read/View This – Time Travel With Mobile Photography

Share

I love this story, one woman, Flora Borsi has the most fabulous sense of humor that I totally adore. She has photoshopped herself photographing iconic moments of our time within the frame. There are images of her shooting The Beetles, Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Elvis Presley and more. Most of the captures are of her with a mobile phone but some depict other cameras too, none detract from the total hilarity of the concept though.

Take a look at the images below and see if you can spot Flora.

Joanne,

Her best ones are the subway train, brilliant, and her Beatles shot. The fact she did a Woody Allen shot is homage to his Zelig film. Another Cindy Sherman in the making! Good for Flora.

Would have a different sense if she placed her self in some of those iconic Eddie Adams images. Just a thought. Might be an idea there.

Be well

Laurence
