Re-creating a famous image – Alphonse Mucha: The Moon

Re-creating a famous image – Alphonse Mucha: The Moon

It's not easy to find the perfect model when you have a certain image in your head. Even if you find someone who meets your "visual requirements", there's still a chance that they simply can't bring the character to life. No offense, just a fact.

As I started a new life in another country a few years ago and I'm pretty bad in connecting people, I hardly meet any potential models. 🙁 Which is quite frustrating when you have so much in your head, but if you keep on believing in your mission, your prayers might be answered - sooner or later, haha . And she came.

Here's the first image of our second photoshoot which happened on the same day as the Madame Renarde series. I've always been fascinated by the glorious women on Alfonse Mucha's paintings. They're so powerfully inspiring, I believe that every lady has an idol among them. One of my favourite is this piece of The Moon and the Stars series.

It was Mother's day, so my first thing in the morning was running to Tesco and grab 2 huge bouquets of chrysanthemum. So yes, her "tiara" was made of real flowers. ^_^ We spent a great afternoon together. <3

Further pictures coming soon.
