(ABC News) -- Bill Gekas loves taking pictures of his daughter – but these aren’t your average dad’s snaps.
Beginning in 2010, the Australian photographer has created a series of portraits inspired by classic paintings, like Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Gekas is an award-winning and self-taught, fine-art portrait photographer. He was born and lives in Melbourne, Australia.
