Taking on the greats and some of their masterpieces, Netherlands-based photographer Zdenek Sindelar has created a renaissance paintings photo series that features ironic modern still lifes and juxtaposing portraits inspired by the old masters.

Paying homage to famous artists and their artwork, Sindelar recreates certain paintings and gives them names that even sound like they're from another era like 'The Supper', 'The Passion of St. Sidonius' and 'Still Alive'. What makes this renaissance paintings photo series unique is the fact that Sindelar does a beautiful job mimicking the artful compositions, rich colors and contrast of light and shadow that was often found in paintings from the time. Paying his respects to the works of Dutch painters like Rembrandt and Pieter Claesz, the photographer does a stunning job fusing the past with the present by adding modern elements.
