It wasn’t that long ago that architect-turned-photographer Tadao Cern turned heads with his Blow Job series with snapshots of people with extremely strong wind blowing in their faces. Now he’s turning heads again by turning Vincent Van Gogh’s famous self-portrait into a photograph with the help of a model with red hair, a stylist who recreated the outfit, his DSLR camera and Photoshop wizardry. Apparently, some confused folks are now convinced he’s somehow managed to photograph the real Van Gogh.
