A Father's Beautiful Portraits of His Daughter

My father showed me these amazing photographs (yes, photographs) by Australian photographer Bill Gekas. Gekas, whose love of photography led him to the portraits of the Old Masters, began experimenting with similar portraits of his own, using his 5-year-old daughter as his model. I honestly can’t tell what I love more, the beautifully styled scenes or his daughter’s elegant expressions. Here are a couple more of my favorites ::

You can see more of his photographs here. Aren’t they lovely? Not only is this beautiful art, but I can’t help thinking about the bond that must surely have formed between Mr. Gekas and his daughter. (Also, doesn’t it remind you of this? It’s like the Instagram version of Mr. Gekas’ project :)
