Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces

Famous male faces
© Famous Faces – Takkoda, published by teNeues, www.teneues.com. Photo © 2010 Takkoda. Please do not name any real person, living or dead, in conjunction with the images. These are real pets, not real celebrities. The well-known individuals have not had any involvement in the creation of the images and they have not approved them, nor has their approval been sought for the publication of these images.
The book “Famous Faces” by takkoda, teNeues Publishing Company 2011, is an encyclopedic effort like Madame Tussaud’s project. But it is a satyric project: All celebrities are featured as animals: The authors, “Takkoda” (Sioux word = anonymous for two pet loving British couples) – they used digital tools, no living animal was harmed for this pet parodies. Maybe I’m wrong sometimes trying to analyze that modern iconography, some of them I did not recognize, I’m German not British, I’m a philosopher, not a pop music fan: but I’m sure, other readers would identify more of the famous faces. By the way: “The well-known individuals have not had any involvement in the creation of the images and they have not approved them …”
