The Caravaggisti were stylistic followers of the 16th-century Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio. National Portrait Gallery acquired Fine Art Portrait Photographer Rory Lewis Captured a series of exceptionally detailed chiaroscuro portraits inspired by Caravaggio of a series of well known actors. In these portraits Rory Lewis attempted to emulate Caravaggio’s naturalism and dramatic lighting with photographic effect. Creating super detail of skin tone, texture and colour. Using inventive art direction Lewis opted for vivid and stark expressions from the contemplation, to the emotionless.
