“I Need References To Transcribe The World Around Me”: Photographer Goes Viral After Calling Out Prize-Winning Student For Stealing Her And Others’ Work

There’s a thin line between inspiration and full-on copying. Although music and movies are two of the most well-known forms of entertainment that suffer the most from copyright infringement, plagiarism is not so uncommon in the art world as well.

Recently, a famous photographer Jingna Zhang, better known as “zemotion,” suffered copyright infringement and posted about it on Twitter. The woman posted a tweet saying that some artist ripped off her photograph from a cover shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam to make his oil pointing. The unoriginal painting also won a cash prize and was exhibited at Luxembourg’s Strassen Stroossen Culture Center.

The photographer posted a series of tweets explaining the entire situation. The oil painting by artist Jeff Dieschburg is almost identical to zemotion’s photograph. In addition, it appears that it was not the first time artist full-on plagiarised someone’s work. Below you’ll find the series of tweets that Jingna Zhang has posted and some spot-on reactions from Twitter users.

Woman Uses AI To Show How The Characters Of “Harry Potter” Were Supposed To Look Based On Book Descriptions (25 Pics)

There are numerous reasons why people prefer books over movie adaptations. Reading leaves room for imagination. We can visualize the setting and how the characters look from the details given by the author. There are usually no length constraints to a book, while the films are very time-limited. Therefore, the reader gets more essential details in the book than the scriptwriters include in the movie.

The Harry Potter film series is perhaps one of the most successful book adaptations ever made. Some even claim that Harry Potter tops the poll of best book-to-film adaptations. Yet, one of the issues in adapting a book to a film is casting. Although some novels use characters based on real people, it’s not an easy job to find an actor who can convey the book character’s both personal qualities and physical traits. Yet, it seems that Harry Potter’s casting directors did a pretty good job.

One Vietnamese woman, known to her followers as MsBananaAnna, wanted to see what Harry Potter characters would look like based solely on their book descriptions. To fulfill that, she used artificial intelligence. Scroll below to see how AI technologies helped MsBananaAnna recreate Harry Potter characters.
