There's something strangely fascinating about these Renaissance costume photographs by Christian Tagliavini. They are odd, intriguing and beautiful all at the same time. I think the abnormally long necks and interesting hats both make the costumes seem odd, but also help draw your attention. If you like these, I also recommend checking out his Dame di Cartone series.
Lauren Peralta has a wonderful set of self portraits throughout her Flickr account. She just has a way of beautifully capturing herself on camera. I highly recommend viewing her most viewed and most interesting photographs or just wandering through her photo stream. Below are just some of the photos she tagged as self portraits.
