Photographer Uses Real Models to Recreate Famous Gustav Klimt Paintings


Austrian photographer Inge Prader wanted to pay homage to one of the greatest artists that ever existed, Gustav Klimt. Her project features live models posing exactly as Klimt’s models in his paintings. The project captured perfectly the ArtNouveau symbolisms that best describe Kilmt’s work. The photos were shot in order to raise funds for HIV/AIDS as part of Life Ball, which is an annual event in Vienna. After the huge success of this project, Prader was later asked to shoot images inspired by Gustav Klimt’s work that are not recreations of the latter’s actual work.
