Statues of the Louvre Dressed Up as Modern-Day Hipsters

Greek gods wearing Ray Bans, Montaigne in khakis! Well this is just a part of the outcome of Paris-based graphic designer Alexis Persani and photographer Leo Caillard, photo-manipulation set. 

Photographs of the statues were made by the photographer at the Louvre, clothes photographed in the studio, then using Photoshop software the outfits were montaged professionally on the marble statues. The results are so stunningly realistic, you can almost think they were actually dressed up for the session. As stated by the artists, the aim of the approach is ” to catch the eye of the beholder by the marriage of two worlds so different”.
