Sherrie Levine

(Walker Evans)

Ink jet print, 10.5 x 7.5", 2001


Levine made a name for herself by re-photographing work by FSA photographers and claiming it as her own. My version is a copy of the original Walker Evans photograph and could be considered either a bootleg Levine or a bootleg Evans. After making this piece, I discovered that artist Michael Mandiberg had a similar idea -- see or for more information.
