Australian self-taught photographer Bill Gekas created a gallery of portraitsof his five year old daughter in the style of old paintings.Photographer Bill Gekas of the Australian city of Melbourne, has createdimages that mimic paintings by Dutch, Flemish and Italian artists of the17th century - such as Rembrandt, Rubens and Caravaggio. The author hasresorted to the manipulation of light and shadow to create the effect of amasterpiece of Baroque era.His five year old daughter Athena brilliantly coped with the difficult work ofCenterfolds. Athena is so harmoniously blended in the Renaissancechiaroscuro, it seems as if she is really a girl from the 17th century.Bill says: "As for this series, with my daughter, I had to do a lot of work.The bulk of the time took the preparatory stage when you need to "feel" atime to catch the main compositional points. Painting - this is not aphotograph, the artist is able to create all sorts of fantastic light and shadoweffects that the photography is extremely difficult to pass. Athena - the onlycharacter that does not require almost no effort on my part. She just satdown at the table and turned his face to the camera - and the stage wasready. Perhaps she has a great future as a photo model. "
