These photographs by Michael Bühler-Rose have an unusual quality about them, as the surroundings are of another alien world to the women depicted here.

Almost like a collage, as with the third image that is represented here, while the first one is almost like a traditional paInting in the style of Ingres or Jacques-Louis David with a modern twist of course.

Thank you for sharing

These photographs have a painterly quality about them, almost 19th century...I can't put my finger on why I feel this and I maybe the only one to see it! Great work, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Egmont, You're right. Michael Bühler-Rose, who spent many years living in India, was influenced by 19th century traditional Indian artist Raja Ravi Varma.

Interesting photos with contrasting backgrounds. I think this type of dresses are used in traditional Indian dancing.
