Wry Watermarks

I'm just going to come right out and say it: I hate big, bold watermarks on photographs. In my opinion, if you're that concerned about your photos being stolen, just don't publish them online. I understand there's a fine line between subtle protection and garish, gaudy ruination of photographs with big, bold watermarks. So I got quite a chuckle when I stumbled upon this art project via Wired's Raw File photo blog. Kip Praslowicz created outlandish watermarks for some of the world's most famous photographers. Not only does it indict the poor taste of some photographers and their watermarking predilections, but it also does a pretty good job with tongue-in-cheek commentary about some of the world's most famous photographers.
