Inspired by the old masters of Flemish paintings, the Lives of the Artists photo series is dark, moody and full of depth. It helps that they are still centered around artists, just modern ones. With a particular focus on texture, light and atmosphere, the studio photoshoot hones in on the creative forces embodied by human forms. Each still has a quiet narrative that begs the audience to bring to life with their own imaginations.

The Live of the Artist photo series was shot by Mike Mellia, a photographer based in New York City, the same man who gained some notoriety by branding common objects with his own likeness. The series was created for commercial purposes. Stats for Classical Modern Artist Portraits Trending: This Year & Average
