LOVE Magazine In Another Editorial Rip-Off Controversy
tFS user childkid raises the question/claim that fashion photographer Mikael Jansson riped-off Australian contemporary art photographer Bill Henson's work, in his latest editorial for Love Magazine's latest issue (No.8). Above is portion of Jansson's editorial (full here), and below is Henson's work. The similarities are uncanny. And if I was to say, I would go with more rip-off than inspiration.
This being LOVE magazine, we're reminded of the What Lies Beneath editorial, by Mert & Marcus (for LoveNo.#6 FW 11.12), in which some claimed the photographers also ripped-off photographer Jeff Bark's work, at the time.
As another user on tFS puts it: "Iwonder if it's Katie [Grand] coming up with these ideas or the photographers"?
An interesting question.
