My version of dorian gray.

Model:Luciano
Orginal Photographer: Pristine.



Those who for unknown reason don't know who dorian gray is, firstly.

His creator: Oscar Wilde's perfectly charming and witty manner of expression will enchant you in more ways than one. He is a master storyteller and drifts through the story like a gentle summer breeze through odour filled roses, giving you the feeling that you can literally smell the flower he is describing. The Picture of Dorian Gray is a masterpiece. A beautiful story, based in a beautiful era. The story focuses on an extremely handsome young man, who at the beginning is naively not aware of the power this brings. Through his friend Basil, the artist who is to blame for the exquisite portrait of Dorian, he meets Lord Henry, the fun loving, dangerously influential gentleman who takes a liking to Dorian and makes him a sort of protégé of his. It is Lord Henry that takes Dorian's innocence and teaches him the way of the world, or British society, and sparks the light of vanity and pride in Dorian. This magical story enters into the fragile world of youth and old age, the thirst to maintain the former and the fear of the inevitable latter, accompanied with dreadful emotions of love, shame, hate, fear...I can't imagine why no one has made a movie of it yet. oh wait! watch 'extraordinary league or gentlemen, the gentlemen that plays mr gray is outstanding. pure excellence.
This is one book that will stand on your shelf with pride, and will be the most worn and torn one there. Enjoy the genius of Wilde.

Dorian! Oh, sexy, sexy man. Any other shots I could gander at? Causelike, that'd be an epic win?

By the way, you're pretty much amazing. And I don't flatter, so this is as candid as an accidental photograph. Rock on!

Hmm, Australia is where you seem to be from, but you said Europe? So... one of the countries there, huh? Russia? Poland? Germany?

You've done a wonderful job here!

May I ask where you found the original photograph for this? As soon as I saw it, I was like— "That's Dorian Gray." I'm dying to see the original again so I can see the colors.

Again, great job!
