Something Old

For lovers of Art & Fashion... some beautiful images by photographer Hendrik Kersten emulating the poise and serenity of a old Dutch masters painting from centuries ago.  

A sombre background with the subject in a 3/4 pose jumping out from the darkness.  Swathed in light and luxe and this season's designs, here his daughter Paula (who is his muse and model in most of his photography) stares confidently into the lens.

She has a bit of an early Isabella Rossellini look don't you think?

I love these pictures they are such a modern take on the old masters. Very ethereal and the lighting is sublime.

Are you referring to Vermeer's paintings? One of my favorite paintings is "The Girl with the Pearl Earring", I saw it in Rijkmuseum in Amsterdam. I also read the book and enjoyed it a lot thinking how somebody create a story after a painting. Lovely images, Helen!
