Levi Mandel

Photographer Levi Mandel photography
Levi Mandel photographs unsuspecting subjects, and then crumples and re-photographs the printed images. These instantly reminded me of works by Christiane Feser.

    I like that you aren’t afraid to point out similarities or rip offs between artists. Thanks for being real Jeff.

  • i just want to make it clear i wasn’t suggesting anyone ripped anyone off – these just reminded me of the work Feser and it is likely there are other artists exploring this simple idea.

  • Oye

     Similarities and rip offs are two VERY different ideas, Colbyedwards. These photographs are yes, similar to those of Feser, but far from a rip off. Stylistically, the only thing that the two works actually have in common is the idea of crumpled portraits.
    Feser’s images are pulled from magazines, Mandel’s are his own. Feser
    folds her portraits in an organic manner, Mandel folds his
    realistically.

    • yea i dont think colby was suggesting they were rip-offs but i just wanted to make sure it was clear i wasn’t – im not in the habit of doing that sort of thing

      thanks for the comments, although there are similarities they are definitely exploring different ideas

      • Colbyedwards

        Yeah I wasn’t suggesting a ripoff or saying that you were, I just really dig that you can call it out when necessary, Or give another artist credit as well. Everyone deserves credit weather its new or re-explored. By the way i really dig both artists work. And I think they are both being original in their own way.
