Giant celebrity portraits composed of humans

Look carefully at these images: are you seeing something different from other famous iconic portraits? Well, yes. They are made with people. Californian photographer/artist Craig Alan recreates celebrity’s photographs using aerial photography and lots of people.

He’s recaptured Elvis Presley, Lucille Ball, Michael Jackson, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe, as well as Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty. Most of the people used to create this project are outfitted in dark clothing to contrast with the stark white surface used as the backdrop. Alan then uses colour to create a differentiation where the lips are.
