Oh boy. I struggled with #7. #8 seems even harder. Not a clue at the moment.

It's certainly not an easy one . Here's some inspiration which might help:

Photographer Rankin recreates a famous photographic image. He works alongside David Bailey on the famous 1963 Vogue picture of model Jean Shrimpton using 60s photographic technology.

I also find this a tough one but the links from David have helped a lot.

I think it's helpful to remember that although the group seems to have a strong 'street' leaning, it's not (as far as I know) dedicated to street and portraiture photography, so that widens the possibilities to draw inspiration from.

I took up photography as a 6th form art student and at the time I was obsessed by the Pre-Raphaelite painters. I was inspired by the Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron who recreated Pre-Raphaelite paintings through her photography. Her images are beautiful and if you Google her you'll see how she managed to capture the essence of the paintings that she was inspired by without directly replicating them.

I wonder if it would help you to take a different approach to your photography for this challenge. From your photosteam it's clear that you put a lot of thought into composing your shots and you are particularly adept at capturing/documenting a moment in time. With this challenge you have permission to take more control of your subject... choose a photograph that inspires you and then pose, direct and instruct your sitter. You'll achieve the 'twist' naturally I'm sure.

Hope this helps.I loved your portrait of Elsie and I'll look forward to seeing #8

Absolute cracking William Egglestone recreation .

As mentioned although we do have a slight lean towards documentary, street and portraiture photography we're keen on having a wide range of professional photographers create challenges.

Many photographers have a style to which they're drawn but we feel stretching one's creative muscles into different but related areas is a bit like cross-training!

We're luck enough to have award winning photographers Fran Halsall (landscape) and Sue Flood (wildlife) set challenges that are coming up in the next few months.
