Damn. I could have totally tortured my kid by posing him for hours in cute little poses from medieval paintings… don’t know why I didn’t think of it at the time. Now, of course, he’s getting too old and too cool for school to let me take portraits of him for hours in costumes. C’est la vie… opportunity missed 🙂
I’ve just stumbled on the work of Australian photographer, Bill Gekas who has an obvious fondness for the works of the Great Master painters of the Renaissance, in particular the Northern Masters, such as Vermeer, Van Eyck and Rembrandt. The results of his very photographic model/daughter are stunning. Beautiful sets, beautiful use of light, beautiful attention to detail and absolutely beautiful results. Almost makes me want to buy some lights and set up a studio again… almost.
