BEAUTY: Photography--Aurelio Monge

Spanish photographer Aurelio Monge creates tableaux and scenes in homage to classical painters and images of Greek and Roman gods and philosophers. I just love how he manipulates light and texture to accurately recreate such masterpieces.

His Beata Anima series is in homage to the painter El Greco. Notice how he poses his models and gets them to contort their hands into the exact poses seen on canvases from the Renaissance:

And he dedicates his Dei Filosofi series to "the great thinkers" like Plato.
