“Street Stone” Project: Classic Sculptures Dressed As Hipsters

French photographer Léo Caillard together with Alexis Persani has found a super sassy way of playing with our understandings of past and present with his “Street Stone” project. By representing classical sculptures cloaked in the directly recognisable form of the flat-white-swilling, rolled-up-trouser-wearing archetypes, Leo has created a series which is not only very amusing, but points out the question just how simply influenced we can be by someone’s outward appearance. Either that or ancient Rome was quite a lot like modern Dalston.
