Final print – framed.
In the Fall of 2012, I took an Art History of Northern Renaissance course.
We were given a challenge to recreate an artist's work with our own spin on it.
Albrecht Dürer was a very simple choice to make. Not only does his work adorn some of my favorite records, but his work ethic, attitude, skill, and craft have influenced me ever since I layed eyes upon his, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
His self-portrait from 1500 CE was chosen so I could showcase my photography skills, attitude, and attention to modeling detail.
