'Anthony and Cleopatra' is a marvelously unique photo series put together by noted photographer Cesar Chavez Lechowick. This photo series is extremely theatrical and dramatic and is highly complicated from a conceptual point of view, in that it requires the viewer to look at and process each photo before thinking deeply about what it represents.

The photo series documents the relationship between three people. The tensions and emotions within the group are depicted in a subtle and non-obvious manner, using various nods to classical art, cinema and pop culture. The photos also address the relationship between photographer and subject in a manner that serves to provoke thought about the complexity of relationships.

This is a photo series that doesn't just revolve around visual beauty, but around the hidden undertones of two people's relationship.
