Rembrandted Kids

Children / Photography

Several years ago I got the idea of capturing transformations of my growing children a little more creatively. I started to take pictures of my kids in the style of famous paintings.

The first photograph was actually a coincidence. I took a picture of my newborn daughter in her new dress and I immediately realised she looked like a girl from Eduard Manet’s painting. That was the starting point of a whole series of pictures and after five years the series became quite big. Until this day I created more than 280 famous paintings impersonations – I call them Rembrandted Kids. I picked my favourite ones here for you.
