Faux Renaissance Portraits by Josef Fischnaller

Josef Fischnaller is a Berlin-based Austrian fashion and advertising photographer. He studied photography at the Academy of Graphic Design in Vienna and currently has his own studio in Berlin. A closer look at his renaissance-inspired portraits will give you some pleasant surprises. Mona Lisa didn’t sit in a swivel chair and had a lip ring. Subtly scattered throughout his work are ski-poles, french fries, a cigarette, a pair of forks, an umbrella, and even a bottle of wine. This guy loves hiding Easter eggs all over.
