Contemporary erotic photographer Mariano Vargas draws most of his inspiration from the great masters of the Italian Renaissance, Botticelli, Raphael, and Leonardo da Vinci.
In the book Soltanto Madonne he creates beauty by combining figures, fine clothing, and theatrical decor. His Madonnas are like “tableaux vivants,” models living their fantasies in a world that links the past, postmodernism and Renaissance. The beautiful women portrayed are allegorised with the following themes: religion and the profane, transcendence and pleasure, magic and the quotidian.
