French photographer Léo Caillard and art director Alexis Persani did the Street Stone photography series, were they dress ancient Louvre’s sculptures into something hip, trendy and up-to-date. As you can see, this is the perfect marriage between two completely different worlds. The artists also demonstrate a great cultural change that the society has undergone throughout centuries, since the original sculptures were created.
To create these photo manipulations, Caillard first photographed the sculptures and then had his friends strike similar poses, wearing such hipster accessories like the Ray Ban shades, flannel and denim shirts and shorts. He would then dress the sculptures using Photoshop as well as Persani’s retouching skills.
The results are fantastic. And they show how important clothes are as they have a HUGE impact on how a person is perceived.
