Mirror or window? by EricForFriends Mirror or window? by EricForFriends
At dusk, in a shopwindow in Florence. Regarde! Regarde avec tous tes yeux!

This picture of a rather awkward statue is unexplainably dear to me. There was no correction of the exposure needed, my camera is much cleverer than me. No cropping, one little retouch.

I'm inclined to agree, although I'd like my photography to be a window - show new things and images instead of the ones that people (should) already know.

Gorgeous statue mate, but after watching it for a couple of seconds it began to really impress me in a weird way. I think it's the eyes... I don't know.

It's almost more ghostly than statuary, in a way. I agree, for reasons I can't entirely pin down I'm having trouble looking away from this. Maybe it's the imperfections in the stone, that make the formal subject look like she's had a messy meal of jam and bread? Or maybe the contradiction implicit in a flowing, gracefully draped dress made of stone? It has a definite creepiness to it.

Totally agree on this with you. I think the sculptor had it in mind. Anyway you look at it, it makes you feel something is right at all. :|

Yes, I think I know what you mean. It's a very majestic statue, but there's something disturbing about it too, that crept in without any intention of the sculptor.
