Redditor Makes Statues Take Selfies By Cleverly Positioning His Camera


Untitled

On a recent visit to the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, one Reddit user had the clever idea of photographing the museum’s collection of plaster Greco-Roman statues to make it look as though they’ve taken a series of statue selfies.

The “models” in these selfies are plaster copies of original statues in the Vatican museum. By taking “selfies” of them, the image series’ author has created a fun sort of bridge between the present and the past.

The best part is that pretty much anyone can take a shot at making photos like these. If you find yourself in a museum and spot an opportunity to take a statue selfie, share the results with us in the comments section below!
