When Shepard Fairey transformed an Associated Press photograph of Barack Obama into the iconic “Hope” poster, it sparked a debate over the limits of copyright, fair use, and artistic license. But it also transformed the image from photojournalist Mannie Garcia into a work of art, according to an article in the New York Times. The photo  is now on sale at a Chelsea gallery in a limited edition of 200. The prints are selling for $1,200 apiece.
