Carved into stone: statues and sculpture
Stone statues and sculptures are, as far as I’m concerned, one of the most fun types of object to photograph.
Their 3D shape and sculpted details allows me to explore them from all sorts of different angles, and play with the lighting (when I’m able to) to bring out details and create these amazing, high-impact, dramatic shots. Some of these photos were shot as part of other projects, and some were shot during visits to public museum galleries.
