Some genius is transforming commuters into Renaissance portraits


If we've learnt anything wandering around the Tate Modern when our mums come to visit us and we pretend to be cultural, it's that "art" is entirely subjective. 

But despite the fact that philosophers have spent decades debating what makes art, art, we totally know it when we see it. And the work of Yorkshire photographer Matt Crabtree is just that.

Matt's project 16th Century Tube Passengers features edited candid photos of commuters, retouched to look like renaissance paintings. What's more, Matt edits the lot on his phone, all whilst on the underground journey. Check out the best below.
