Over the years we have noted images that have been served up in different versions in homage or satire or simple good humour. Here it’s a photograph by Lewis Hine and it’s not just LEGOmaniacs and Charlie who have joined in the game. Hines himself produced a number of versions of his famous 1920 photograph The Man with a Wrench drawing on different poses and even different men. You can see more LEGO set-ups inspired by the greats of photography here and a run down on Lewis Hine’s own variants here.
