Interesting find I made today at BBC News. Peruvian artist and photographer Christian Fuch os obsessed with the portraits of his German and Latin American family members. Enough to dress - or cross dress - as it may be appropriate to reproduce the period portraits of his family...

Is this a case of genealogy run amok?  Grin  In any case, the portrait reproductions are impressive.

If you had a trove of family pictures or movies, would you also dare to reproduce your ancestors in living portraits?

Thanks for pointing those out. The artist has done an impressive job in changing his appearance to match that of his ancestors. I'm not sure about emulating forebears, but it might be fun to recreate famous paintings in a Steampunk style. Something like The Ambassadors or Un bar aux Folies Bergère might be interesting to steam up.

Yours,
Miranda.
