Artists around the world have long inspired by the works of Old Masters like Rembrandt, Raphael and Vermeer. Following their style has never been easy, particularly in photography. When Australian photographer Bill Gekas recreated the style through his photographs, he chose to star his five-year-old daughter as the subject.
These photos of his daughter (Athena) take you a few of centuries back in time. Thoughtful planning goes into each photograph with the most attention to the details of a costume, props, and the lighting. Bill deserves gratitude not just for the idea and its perfect execution but also for the unique post processing work that creates magical artwork. Athena deserves as much recognition for being an adorable subject who poses beautifully in each of the images.
