Mark Seliger ripoff?

YTWWN:Added a few more images to help illustrate your point better.

Recently I saw this post about a book featuring mexican television company Televisa’s artists where the photographer ripped off photographer Mark Seliger, several times. The post is in spanish but you can see in the photos what it’s about. The post says the photos are credited to Gabriela Saavedra, it seems this is her site.
