GIUSEPPE ARCIMBOLDO

DETAILED PAINTINGS FROM THE RENAISSANCE

Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian Renaissance painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. His famous Seasons series was made in 1573. Each season is represented by a blend of fruits, vegetables or flowers specific to each period of the year: stump covered with ivy, orange and lemon for Winter; fruits and vegetables for Summer; crown of grapes for Autumn; and eighty species of flowers for Spring.

Due to his strange rendition of the human figure, there is a debate among art critics as to whether or not Arcimboldo’s paintings are the work of a deranged mind. A more likely explanation, however, is that the paintings are a product of the Renaissance era in which he lived, which was fascinated with riddles, puzzles, and the bizarre. If this was the case, then Arcimboldo’s strange depictions were only just catering to the tastes of the time.

Marc Laroche is a Luxembourg based photographer. His concepts are simple but the execution of each of his series is perfectly executed. Laroche has different series: Anima, Beauty, Infinity and Hair are the ones that more called our attention.

“I guess I’m old fashioned, but I really need to get to know my model before I’m able to shoot beautiful pictures. I just talk to them in advance and try to relate to their personality which results in an intriguing visual interaction.”
