The Hopeposters that artist Shepard Fairey created during the presidential campaign used an image of Barack Obama that’s based on a photograph taken
for the Associated Press by freelancerMannie Garcia .
The AP service says Fairey didn’t get permission to use the photo as he did.
Fair use is a legal concept that allows exceptions to copyright law, based on, among other factors, how much of the original is used, what the new work is used for and how the original is affected by the new work. What do you THINK ? Has Shepard Fairey manipulated the image enough to claim it his own? This video will give you an insight of the artist Shepard Fairey.
Mrs.Dinardo has been obamicon. Try it for yourself. This site lets you re-create images in the style of Sheppard Fairey’s famous Obama image. Be creative this does not have to be a self portrait. Use images that have meaning to you. Keep in mind that the word you select is very important to the picture. Save it and bring it to class.Extra credit for sure!!
