Classical Sculptures Dressed As Hipsters

By  | 

French photographer Léo Caillard and art director Alexis Persani have created a fun series where ancient Louvre’s sculptures are dressed as hipsters. Besides marrying 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 sculptures dressed As hipsters, 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 not only hilarious, but also show that clothes have an enormous impact on the way one is perceived.
