Toronto, September 26, 2013. My friend George Dunbar dropped me a note yesterday to say how delightful he found “famous photos re-created in Play Doh“. You can visit the BBC news article here to see the famous image by Andreas Feininger as shown in the icon at left, or you can click here to visit the website of the creator, Eleanor MacNair.

In the case of the c1955 Feininger portrait of Dennis Stock, titled the photojournalist, Stock is holding a screw-mount Leica with a fast lens (Summarit) and a flash shoe clipped view finder in front of his face. I first saw this image in the 1970s in The Camera, one of the Time-Life series books on photography. Enjoy!
