This editorial shot by Alexey Sorokin for Push It Magazine is filled with modern fashions, but its styling looks something like a Renaissance-era painted portrait.

From the blurred and softened lines in the finished pictures for Push It Magazine to the perfected faraway stares from model Liam Onell, stylists Yekaterina Bazhenova and Svetlana Sorokina and photographer Alexey Sorokin make a killer art team. Check out the full editorial above.

Implications - These renaissance portraits employ retro qualities to appeal to the modern consumer. With contemporary society being bombarded with various products, many individuals are looking for commodities from times gone by. Companies should consider how to induce these emotions of nostalgia in order to sell their commodities.
