I love this guy’s work. It’s got a real Vermeer-ish vibe with a bit of de Chirico thrown into the pot.

In his series of self-portraits, “Portraits of a Serialsammler” Brinkmann dons an assortment of old clothing and household items salvaged from the street or from flea markets, sets the self-timer on his camera, and readies his pose, capturing himself in this unusual regalia.
