These Renaissance nine portraits are parts of photo project called “1503” created by by Swiss/Italian photographer Christian Tagliavini. Taking 13 months to complete this project was inspired by the masters of the Renaissance, notably Agnolo di Cosimo ( known as “Il Bronzino”) who was born in the same year as the title. All characters are portrayed in striking handcrafted clothes made by Tagliavini himself. From beginning to completion Tagliavini’s work is a labour of love. He admits that he enjoys the process as much as the resulting photograph. Enjoy!
