ICONATOMY by George Chamoun // A Journey Through Time


     As a avid lover of cinema classics, I have always had a thing for old hollywood movie stars. James Dean, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, I have a soft spot for all of them, but I must admit I love the stars in hollywood now just as much as some of the older actors and actresses.
     "ICONATOMY constitutes a series of collages by George Chamoun, a Swedish jewelry design student at the Konstfack University of the Arts.  The project was the student’s workshop with the theme ‘icons’ that would imply either celebrities, fashion icons, political, religious or any other personalities that influenced our world in one way or another."
      I absolutely love these pictures. I think they are brilliantly done and as a digital graphics student, I would love to do a project like this.
     P.S Its amazing how similar these stars look.





Can you Name them all?
