I like the 'Classics Revisited' articles in AP. Sometimes I like the AP recreation better than the original. For me the latest example failed at the first view. I am refering to the recreation of Louise Brooks by EugeneRobert Richee in the latest AP. The choice of model, the hair styling, make up, wardrobe ,lighting, and pose are spot on. So much has been done to get this shot right yet it failed. It took a few minutes to realise why, although it just didn't seem right at first view. So much of this photograph is down to the near perfect parabola of the lower loop of pearls. This parabola is essential and dominant to the composition. Now I could imagine Andrew being a bit shy about precisely moving the pearls over such a delicate region as a lady's breast but how could not anyone on the shoot not notice what was wrong? Did the team kick themselves after the shoot was done. That kink in the pearls as it passed over the model's unseen nipple spoils the whole thing; a gentle touch to the right would have made all the difference. There is also a slight kink in the upper loop as it passes over the right collar bone but this also occurs in the original; also if that kink had been corrected then the pearls would have encroached on the white skin and is probable best where it is in both photographs. Looking at this further, there is also something not quite right just above the neckline at the model's right.
