Photographer #029: Rainer Elstermann

German photographer Rainer Elstermann, 1965, approaches his photographs as if they were paintings. He is clearly inspired by the great painters. The lighting he uses is immaculate. In his series Old Masters he even recreated several icon paintings into photographs. The photographs below are from various series.
