French photographer Leo Calliard and art director Alexis Persani thought it would be a good idea to dress up the classical Greek sculptures in hipster clothing outside the Louvre for their new photo series entitled Street Stone. Hip name for a hip photo series I guess.
To pull this off, Calliard first photographed the statues and then got his hipster mates (is this guy making fun of hipsters with this series? If so why does he have so many hipster mates? Probably an ironic thing) to strike similar poses to them wearing their usual attire. He would then use Photoshop to dress the sculptures and the results look like they’re pretty much perfect to be honest. It’s amazing what people can do on Photoshop these days huh?
According to the artists themselves, they were attempting to demonstrate the great cultural change that society has gone through since the sculptures were first created centuries ago. I don’t know if this photo collection really succeeds in doing that but it’s still pretty hilarious looking at all these dumb statues dressed up as hipsters.
