Graphic designers and artists Franciscus & Franciscus have given an unexpected interpretation to BYBROWN. The duo re-invents classic portrait photography, painting with digital tools and mixing 16th-century portraiture, precise embellishment and point sharp details.
The 'Pilgrimage' series was inspired by the monks painted by Zurbarán, Rembrandt and Greco. With contemporary styling, the models change into travellers, crusaders, refugees and city nomads.
The pictures are hard to date and breathe a surreal atmosphere.
