DEAD RINGER

Earlier this evening I watched part of an episode of the BBC's Culture Show which featured a celebrity photographer photographing celebrities (tautologically) in the style of some of Rembrandt's more famous portraits, to coincide with the opening of a new exhibition of his so-called late works at the National Gallery in London.  With a single light source and a team of helpers the task didn't look particularly difficult.  Coincidentally, I photographed this man in his greenhouse this morning, and even with contemporary clothing I think he would have easily made an interesting subject for any artist.  You can see the whole photograph at openphotography.co.uk/allotmenteers.
