This project celebrates beauty by portraying people with flowers to create pictures inspired by Dutch Golden Age paintings. 17th Century Dutch artists were famous for their portraits and still life paintings. The idea is to build on the wisdom of the Dutch masters in a contemporary context, constructing pictures that reflect who people are, what interests them, and what they do.

This picture was based on a studio photograph, with the background constructed in Photoshop.
