Michael Wolf, Real Fake Art.
Between 2005 and 2007, Michael Wolf photographed painters in Shenzhen, China, who reproduced famous works of art. Each portrait consisted of a “copy artist” along with an example of a copied work. The settings were described as “dirty alleyways and street corners.” One reviewer wrote that the pictures “document intimate cultural and economic facets of globalization even as they record and complicate critical dilemmas about authenticity and the non-economic values of art.” The series was collected in his book Real Fake Art published in 2011.
