Photographer Léo Caillard and digital artist Alexis Persani collaborated on a series of hipster sculptures called ‘Street Stone.’ The project examines how much clothing and stance alter perception, as they dressed classic statues at the Louvre in the latest fashion trends.

Caillard and Persani photographed the sculptures and then asked their friends to stand in similar poses and model the outfits. The images were then manipulated and the clothes were digitally placed on the statues.
