original artwork held in the Cincinnati Art Museum, Ohio
This little guy is an ongoing attempt of mine to photograph works of art in a visually interesting or meaningful way. So often photographers want to take as accurate a photo as possible and then, completely by accident, take out a lot of the experience of an artwork. Probably, the original sculptor didn’t intend for this wooden saint to be quite so whimsical, but I feel I captured the reaction I had upon encountering him.
