Eleanor Macnair has recreated many iconic photos in Play-Doh

It started by chance. An unusual challenge in a pub quiz - to recreate a famous artwork in Play-Doh - and Eleanor Macnair found herself something she loved doing.

She started recreating her favourite photos, and posted them on a blog, which soon became an internet hit. Now she uses its popularity to promote the original works of the artists.

Eleanor has her own show, in London, where many of her works are on display.

BBC News went for a look around.

Video Journalist: Dan Curtis

Photographs rendered in Play-Doh, at the Atlas Gallery in London, from 2nd October to 21st November. Entrance is free.
