The photographic project ICONIC began in 2016 and evolved since then into a huge work of art and passion.


Show Full Text

With the help of a fashion designer Lucie Vervellea and a visual and make-up artist Joris Souris, I was able to recreate with innovation and accuracy more than 150 photos of artistic and historic figures who shaped the world as we know it.

In order to make the project flawless, artistic and physiognomic skills were required but also historic and biographic knowledge on each icon.

Here's a mesmerizing glimpse of this work down below. You can also check out my work on the website below and even pre-order the book here.

The model looks like that singer Ariana Grande, but she is hardly iconic, unlike Hepburn.
