After "Pygmalion and Galatea" by Etienne Maurice Falconet. 1763. Louvre, Paris
Model: Alise. Manipulated from two photographs, both mine
From Marble series: endegor.deviantart.com/gallery…
You do wonderful work, but this is a landmark photo. Wonderful job!
Then I wait for a model, which body is close in proportions to the statue
Then I shot the model in the same pose like the statue (several shots from different angles).
Then I chose two photos (statue + model) and manually match them in one composition.
Sometime it's easy, sometime is terribly difficult - I mean the matching process...
Second -- I love the "meta" nature of this one. At first it seems to be just a reflection of the story of the original statue, of the woman coming to life -- only the man is still a statue, so it adds an interesting counter-element there. She's coming to life except the man who is waiting for her isn't alive. I like it! It's layered!
And if so how would you like to be paid if the price is right?
