Horrific Paintings Of The Underworld Brought Back To Life In The Present Day

Much like these erotic artworks by Gustav Klimt that were recently brought back to life, conceptual photographer Lori Pond was inspired to re-create the dark and disturbing paintings of Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450 - 1516).

Focusing on his most impressive and notable artworks "The Last Judgment", "The Temptation of St. Anthony" and "The Garden of Earthly Delights" she carefully went about crafting them as modern day portraits remaining as faithful as she could to the original paintings. Each scene is an impressive combination of digital elements, hand-made props, custom clothing and numerous photographs.

"Most resulting photographs are made in camera, apart from some exceptions when I didn’t want to string up a woman in a harp or couldn’t find ears or birds bigger than a human." she admits.

The detailed cracked textures you can see on her photographs were lifted from the high-resolution images of the Bosch paintings themselves - modern day tribute to the wear and tear of old.
