Klaus Enrique: Homage to Arcimboldo

A very fresh take on the 16th portraitist

Klaus Enrique’s own exuberance is evident in this series of photographs in which he pays homage to the Italian portraitist Arcimboldo in spectacular style. Referencing both the 16th century master’s own works as well as updating his subjects to reflect cultural and political concerns, Klaus’ images are highly detailed, impassioned, and executed splendidly. They look great as over-sized prints but this back-lit screen serves them pretty well, too.
