This has been blowing up on social media over the weekend and it’s not hard to see why. French photographer Léo Caillard has found a super-cheeky way of playing with our perceptions of past and present with his Hipster In Stone project. By depicting classical sculptures cloaked in the immediately recognisable garb of the flat-white-swilling, rolled-up-trouser-wearing archetypes, Leo has produced a series which is not only very funny, but leads us to question just how easily swayed we might be by someone’s outward appearance. Either that or ancient Rome was quite a lot like modern Dalston. You decide!
