Italian artist Claudio Parmiggiani, who was trained at the art school Istituto Statale di Belle Arti, creates everything from photo series to book art.

If you take a look at the sample shown in this gallery, you'll understand how talented Parmiggiani really is. This particular sample of his art features a cathedral surrounded with what appears to be shattered glass.

What do you think was the intended message of this series of artworks?

Implications - No longer looking for overtly exaggerated designs, consumers are attracted to ones that feature a more classic appearance. Products that strive to be classic appeal to those who want to purchase something and use it forever.
