For this year’s Life Ball in Vienna, photographer Inge Prader has stunningly reinterpreted the paintings of Gustav Klimt. Intricately crafted costumes, sets and props, along with carefully posed models bring to (still) life some of Klimt’s most iconic works. Gorgeous warriors and women are posed along with semi-nude figures, set against detailed mosaic backdrops, many in Klimt’s signature gold.
It’s easy to say, ‘Oh, yeah, beautiful’ and keep moving. But look again at the detail. These are not exact recreations, they are reimagined, and they are SPECTACULAR.
