Photos Used with Permission from Photographer Bill Gekas
Bill Gekas is an award winning photographer out of Australia and a recent piece that he did tips the scale in terms of portraiture and fine art. Bill found inspiration in paintings from the old masters, and while perusing through their work got the idea to recreate the works through photos. Now, this has been done before, but once someone considers how much set design (or masterful Photoshopping) goes into this, then you begin to understand why these images are just so much more beautiful.
With that said though, they do quite the job of standing out on their own. Take a look at some selects after the jump.
