Names:
Born: Joseph Rentmeesters 
Dates:  1892 - 1969
Born:  Belgium, Brussels
Active:  Belgium
 
  
He decided early on a career in photography. He chose to portray opera stars, actors, dancers and variety theater artists from the 1920s and 1930s in a very unique fashion. The theatrical and the opera house scenes were rebuilt in the studio itself. These remarkable settings put the pose of the actor or dancer in context. While many of the settings were actually rebuilt in the studio, some were simply shot and then inserted on the negative. Rentmeesters' photographs for the Koninklijke Muntschouwburg in Brussels are among his best, including images from Madame Butterfly and Faust.
