Wow...no...but that's not even trying to be subtle. Is there any link between the two? Sorry, I don't know Michael Ninn's work and wanted to check before jumping on the "OMG" rant that's likely to follow.
But certainly, if it's without permission then that's pretty shocking.
I think the most important point here is that his model is distinctly less attractive...
oh my god no way that is totally copying your photo!
Wow. There's a huge difference between being inspired by someone's work and flat out ripping them off. Shame on them.
Wow, someone is stealing creative Ideas... I would completely be pulling a "Give me Credit".
Stupid Creativity theives..
Even the eyelashes are the same!
If you like someone else's idea, then learn from it and make it your own, don't copy it and just make the face straight-on!
That is nothing more than a rip-off
really shitty photography and photoshop skills.
If you insist on stealing someone elses work at least pick something you can equal or top. Thats just ridiculous.
looks like a replication if you ask me.
Inspired by your work, no doubt.
This is not the poster's work. I didn't make this post.
It's my work with Apnea as model and stylist and Peacock Blue did the neckpiece and headpiece design.

Muahahaha ... just checked out Neo Pornographia Vol. 2 yesterday and it was about as good as this cover is original ...
Rip-off....and a cheap one at that. The detail and lighting on your shot is far superior. :)
Oh, wow, that's unbelievable... does this guy really think that no one would see the obvious resemblance (rip off) to the picture of Apnea? It's the same concept, costume, makeup, and basically, the same photo! What a jack ass.
