Art Project: Real Life Flemish Portraits

Real Life Flemish Portraits by Sacha Goldberger

Inspired by the Dutch master, Rembrandt, Goldberger enlisted a small army of costume, hair, and make-up designers to recreate the appearance of authentic Flemish costumes for this portrait series. "All of the animals are real," he says. "It was very complicated to shoot them, but also a very fun experience. I wanted my girlfriend to pose with the Marabou Stork," he continues. "Unfortunately, it escaped and flew all over the studio. It felt like we were in Jurassic Park. And I couldn't resist to shoot my grandmother."
