Some of Van Empel’s most famous works include portraits of young African children. In these clips we explore these images in further depth:

 

Price range information: Works range from $20,000 to $150,000.

Van Empel has a wonderful sense of design. One must remember that each image is made up of perhaps 100 smaller photographs that are put together rather than just one image that is manipulated on the computer.
