Classic Sculptures Dressed in Modern Outfits by Léo Caillard

“French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with French art director Alexis Persani to dress ancient Louvre’s sculptures into something more trendy and up-to-date.

To create ‘Street Stone’, Caillard first photographed the statues and his friends in similar poses. Then Persani stacked the shots on top of each other in Photoshop, erasing everything but the clothes from the top layer.

By contrasting modern and classical culture, the creative duo wanted to show that society has undergone a big change and continues changing. The results are hilarious! It also shows that clothes have an enormous impact on the way one is perceived.”

Illuminated Landscapes by Benoit Paillé

Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé has been working on a fascinating series of landscapes using a bizarre lighting method involving a suspended glowing square. The images above are not photoshopped, the 1×1 meter light is instead hung in the center of each photograph and the resulting image shows the unique form of illumination that creeps into the surrounding area. Paillé says his goal is to redefine what a landscape photograph is by questioning its reality, creating a kind of poetic moment in space and time.
