When I first saw this image on The Online Photographer, a photography blog, I thought I was looking at a image by Cezanne. But how could that be? So I looked further to discover it was taken by master photographer David Hoptman. He teaches a Tuscan Light Photo Workshop and clearly is on to something.
From what I can glean from his site, he is very much about form, texture, color and design. Obviously with a captivating eye. And he works with a variety of styles and approaches. Here are a few examples I liked.
