The series Hipster in Stone was captured by photographer Léo Caillard and retouched by Alexis Persani.  The series’ premise is simple: classical statues don a hipster wardrobe.  The effect, though, is amusing.  A simple change or addition of clothing seems to transform each figure’s timeless grace to a modern boredom.  Subtle expression becomes cool aloofness.  However, the photographs do draw a strange similarity between ancient figures and modern models.  A preoccupation with appearance and appreciation for (or obsession with) physical beauty seems to never have left us entirely.
