Léo Caillard is the artist behind Street Stone. With a liberal application of modern clothes, he has a given new twist to ancient statues scattered all around the Louvre. Of course, he wasn’t actually allowed to dress up the statues themselves, so he did the next best thing. He took shots of his friends who were dressed in trendy clothes while they mimicked the poses of the classic stone figures. A clever bit of digital manipulation transferred the clothes to the statues, turning the ancient stone hip and trendy.
