The picture above looks like the painting Mona Lisa right? Complete with missing eyebrows and that tiny smile.

That’s is the product of Austrian-born photographer Josef Fischnaller‘s photo project which is inspired from the scenes of old paintings with a modern twist. One of his favorite artists is the Italian painter Caravaggio.

Josef Fischnaller studied photography at the Academy of Graphic Design in Vienna and currently has his own studio in Berlin. A closer look at his renaissance-inspired portraits will give you some pleasant surprises. The Mona Lisa we know didn’t sit in a swivel chair and didn’t have a lip ring.

Some Other Place by Lori Nix

American photographer Lori Nix creates scenes based on the style of classic landscape painters of the schools of Romanticism. Nix is a traditional photographer and she constructs her subjects rather than finding it. All of her photos are done in front of a camera with no digital manipulation. This photo project Some Other Place is one of her projects which display a world between a reality and illusion.

Lori Nix is interested in depicting danger and disaster but she mixes it with a touch of humor. She was born in a small town in Kansas and every season brought its own drama that inspired her to recreate this experiences in one of her photo projects Accidentally Kansas.

Nix said, “Photography is very subjective and every person will come away with something different from the same picture. My personal opinion is that photography should elicit some form of emotion in the viewer, be it awe, anger, or humor. Photography should also introduce the viewer to a new perspective.”

The Human Body by Mona Kuhn

The Human Body by Mona Kuhn

The Human Body by Mona Kuhn

Photographer Mona Kuhn is best known for her large-scale photographs of nudes. Her work redefines the ways of looking at the body. Her pictures often depict classical themes with a light and insightful touch. Kuhn’s approach to her photography is unusual that she develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable naturalness and intimacy. Her subjects are naked but they are comfortable in their own skin.

As Kuhn said, “I always feel that people are dressed in their own skin.” For her, the nude is like “an art-historical costume you can’t get away from. And if a nude is a costume, then naked would be a uniform.” Focusing her lens on different subjects including her friends and family, Kuhn’s photographs are markedly egalitarian – meaning that every one of them is equal in every aspect.
