Bill Gekas, the Aussie photographer

I think I’m in love. You know I occasionally write here my musings about visual arts, but my posts usually talk about old paintings. This time, my post is about modern photography. I just learned about the Aussie photographer Bill Gekas.

He photographs his young daughter in the historical or bizarre costumes and settings, and his photos are truly amazing. And his model – oh gosh! She is so sweet in those getups. Look at his gallery, folks.

Here is probably my favorite shot:


Or maybe this one:

Joker's child

Truly, go look at his gallery. There are too many to choose from. He is pretty famous, won a bunch of awards, and no surprise. I’m telling you, I’m in love. His images make my heart beat faster. Of course, I wanted to share.
