Classic Statues Dressed in Modern-Day Clothes

 

http://www.behance.net/alexis-persani

In a series entitled /// Street stone ///, photographer Léo Caillard and retoucher Alexis Persani imagine what classic statues would look like if they were dressed in modern-day clothing.

Through meticulous digital photo manipulation, Persani is able to create the illusion that the statues are actually wearing clothes by achieving realistic lighting, shadows and textures. It’s a fun exploration that interestingly makes the statues appear more lifelike and relatable.
