This intriguing portrait series by photographer Jon Jacobsen was inspired by his friends, making it personal as well as majestic. The idea behind this series was for Jacobsen to show the world the way he sees his friends. The way he portrays these people reflects the line of work they're in, and how talented they are.

The friends Jacobsen has chosen to participate in this series are models, actors and artists. In one shot viewers see a beautiful woman who seems to be wearing an exploding porcelain crown. This imagery makes viewers think of her as a porcelain doll. In another shot, Jacobsen focuses on his artist friend sketching dragons and other mythical creatures. The artist is seen wearing chainmail gloves, and his artworks start to jump off the page.

These portraits serve as flattering tributes to Jacobsen's friends.
