A moment frozen in time, that’s what a statue is. Whether it’s the anxious look on David’s face after he has thrown the stone or the lifeless head of Medusa held by Perseus, it’s always about that moment, that instant in which everything just stopped and turned into stone.
Today I took my camera with me to take some photos of these beautiful statues in Piazza della Signoria in Florence. As always my 50 mm lens came in handy because I wanted to shoot these statues as if they were real people. The level of detail on these sculptures is just overwhelming. They work in perfect harmony with nature. The light made by the sun and the shadows made by these statues work together to create one of the most magistic things that a man can ever lay eyes on.
