The Renaissance painting photography of Christian Tagliavini will resonate with people on a variety of different levels. For some it will be construed as creepy while for others it will be an interesting take on classical artworks. In fact, some people might mistake them for actual paintings instead of the photos they truly are.

This is due in large part to the surreal aspect of each image as well as the dramatic lighting and stunning costumes. The Renaissance painting photography was specifically inspired by the work of Florentine Agnolo di Cosimo, better known as Bronzino. About his diligence, Tagliavini says, "It's important to me to make the props and costumes I use in my photos myself. I spend a lot of time researching and creating all the elements, such as the clothes, the wigs, and the hats."
