Reminiscence of Renaissance

Desiree Dorlon is a dutch photograph born in 1963.

I particularly got enthousiastic about the serie of portraits she made as a tribute to the Renaissance period, and especially to the Portrait of a young girl of Petrus Christus. Fascinating !

Those photos are quite dark and the faces are livid, nearly a black and white.

Most photos were made in the manor of Amelisweerd and give the impression of ghosts of an other century.

A strange but beautiful atmosphere. A grave beauty.
