If you will imagine for just a second that these iconic photos were fake or created in a studio, then this is probably how they would have been staged. Photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger have become experts in recreating some of the most iconic and famous photographs ever taken and it all started with a challenge - to recreate the most expensive photograph ever sold, Andreas Gursky’s Rhein II.

Since then the two of them have been recreating historical photographs of iconic moments for the project they have titled Ikonen, using small sets in which every aspect of the photograph is carefully considered and crafted.

Below you can see their work alongside the original photographs. For more info head here.
