Cook's drawings are so detailed you initially might think them photographs. The piece here is charcoal and conte crayon on primed linen. He was trained, in Japan, as an architectural draftsman, which goes a long way in explaining his eye for detail. After this training he studied at the Royal College of Art. There is more too this piece than duplication of reality. The white field behind adds something surreal to the mix. This isn't a sheep in a barnyard.
Puranen's photos are works after my own heart. He takes photos of portraits, in fragments, avoiding dramatic use of light. For him the use of light is NOT to recreate the portrait exactly but to bring attention to the photographic process involved. This Goya piece stands out with the intentional bluring of the upper piece. Some might cry "That is just a bad photo." But if that is the intent it is actually a good photo. It is an interesting art concept, taking photos of other people's art and altering them so subtly.
