Bill Gekas, a photographer hailing from Melbourne, Australia, has managed to travel back in time using the magic of Photoshop as well as his own undeniable skill behind his camera lens. Inspired by Old Masters of Western European painting such as Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, Bill Gekas has turned his daughter into a Medieval muse (or perhaps that should be Victorian). Whatever the case may be, she is absolutely breathtaking, in an adorable sort of way.

In particular, Bill Gekas has managed to nail the lighting such painters came to be known for, "characterised by strong window light falling on one side of the subject's face and body, producing shadows amid a rich glow," as written on The Age.
