I’ve been photographing statuary for years as a natural extension of photographing nudes. There is a negligible difference in the curves and forms of the living, breathing body in flesh and the body in stone or bronze.  Modeled on actual bodies, the figures of statues, when reduced to the two- dimensional plane of black and white photography, are virtually indistinguishable from actual nudes.  Grain in the development mimics the texture of live skin.   Their faces, however, are another matter; eyes that stare eternally without light or expression, lips that will never speak, deaf ears that flank smooth marble faces. For me the expressions of these mute beings are the primary seduction in photographing them.
