  3. Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani's “Street Stone” Gives Louvre's Classical Sculpture Some Hip Threads

    Artist on Tumblr, Behance, Facebook

    "As if they didn’t already have the perfect physique… now the Louvre’s classical sculptures have flawless style as well. French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with digital mastermind Alexis Persani to give these ancient sculptures a sartorial update with their “Street Stone Series.”

    Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series. Suddenly the way they lounge, look off into the distance and sport those flamboyant moustaches looks all too calculated. Then again, since the now-monochrome statues were originally brightly painted, maybe the images aren’t that far off base after all.

    In literature as in life, the rules are all too often different for girls. There are many instances where an unlikable man is billed as an anti-hero, earning a special term to explain those ways in which he deviates from the norm, the traditionally likable. Beginning with Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, the list is long. An unlikable man is inscrutably interesting, dark, or tormented but ultimately compelling even when he might behave in distasteful ways.

    When women are unlikable, it becomes a point of obsession in critical conversations by professional and amateur critics alike. Why are these women daring to flaunt convention? Why aren’t they making themselves likable (and therefore acceptable) to polite society? In a Publisher’s Weekly interview with Claire Messud about her recent novel, which features a rather “unlikable” protagonist named Nora who is bitter, bereft, and downright angry about what her life has become, the interviewer said, “I wouldn’t want to be friends with Nora, would you? Her outlook is almost unbearably grim.” And there we have it. A reader was here to make friends with the characters in a book and she didn’t like what she found.

    Messud, for her part, had a sharp response for her interviewer. “For heaven’s sake, what kind of question is that? Would you want to be friends with Humbert Humbert? Would you want to be friends with Mickey Sabbath? Saleem Sinai? Hamlet? Krapp? Oedipus? Oscar Wao? Antigone? Raskolnikov? Any of the characters in The Corrections? Any of the characters in Infinite Jest? Any of the characters in anything Pynchon has ever written? Or Martin Amis? Or Orhan Pamuk? Or Alice Munro, for that matter? If you’re reading to find friends, you’re in deep trouble. We read to find life, in all its possibilities. The relevant question isn’t ‘Is this a potential friend for me?’ but ‘Is this character alive?’”
