For over two decades, artist Vik Muniz has meticulously arranged and photographed things to look like other things: portraits in dripped chocolate,monsters out of caviar, and “paintings” from warehouses full of junk. His latest works, on view at Sikkema Jenkins Gallery right now, take on photography WITH photography.

Each work is a photograph taken of an arrangement of hundreds of otherphotographs that represent a photograph… and they are huge. Below, find full images and “details” of four works in the show.
