Claudio Parentela is an illustrator/photographer/painter/journalist, who currently resides in Catanzaro, Italy.  We love the way he deconstructs images of beauty by recombining elements of fashion photography with those of his own imagination.  Viewing these strange, yet whimsical images is surprisingly cathartic: upon first looking at an image, our minds almost immediately gravitate toward the photo in anticipation that the image will read like the thousands of other fashion images we see on a daily basis.  Yet, to our minds surprise, the surrounding elements are hardly at all anything we're used to seeing.
