These images left me speechless. I shall simply note that this is the remarkable work of Christian Tagliavini . . . . who says this about his work - " I build up stories and dramatize them using photography and creativity as a skillful artifice, at the same time being author, stage designer, costume designer, casting director - and photographer."
Sir - Were I a contemporary Medici, I would rush to commission you to create my wardrobe and immortalize the family in portraits which would hang in my castle . . . . designed by Axel Vervoordt.
But of course !
