For their project “Museum Anatomy,” artists Chadwick Gray and Laura Spector recreated and photographed old paintings from around the world on a human body instead of a canvas. Using 19th century museum portrait paintings as inspiration, the duo recreate the work by projecting the photograph onto Chadwick's body and repositioning it until they find a pose that works well (special-effects make-up alone takes 8-15 hours in one sitting). The resulting photos are turned into large prints and have been exhibited in 12 countries around the world.
