"Following the Old Masters is a portfolio to pay tribute to chiaroscuro - an oil painting technique - which is very similar to low key photography. Secondly, it's an hommage to my favorite old masters, especially the Spanish and Italian painters from the Renaissance and Golden Age, whom I wanted to honor: especially El Greco, Velazquez, Murillo and the female painter Artemisia Gentileschi. The symbolist Julio Romero de Torres, who is known for his portraits of beautiful Andalusian women, holds a special place in my heart. Some of these portraits are dedicated to the Victorian avant-garde, called The Pre-Raphaelites, and their stunning female models. I was hugely inspired by Dante Gabriel Rosetti, John William Waterhouse and Frank Cadogan Cowper, brightened by Tennyson's poetry… and the soul of the rose went into my blood.
All portraits were done in a studio with one single studio light, using only Hipstamatic."
