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.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
