Photo Friday: Human Statue in Preparation

Photo Friday — By Paige Moore on April 8, 2011 at 2:48 pm

The best and worst thing about Athens is you just don’t know what to expect when you turn a corner. Walking through Plaka today the surprise was for the best: a woman preparing to become a human statue (and being filmed in the meantime) framed against a heavy paneled door and yellow stucco facade of a Neoclassical building, archetypal of the historic neighborhood. The winter chill finally seeming to have been chased by the sun, street performers like her are coming out en masse.

    Wow Paige!! My favorite Friday Photo yet…you captured so much: the personality, theatre, technique, possible desperation and loneliness — just filled with thought. What a perfect photo.

    Congratulations Paige, absolutely beautiful. You have an eye for character.

    “possible desperation and loneliness”…or ecstasy and joy in sharing her art…a perfect image like this makes me want to speak with its subject, ask questions, find out more…

    what a lovely thought-provoking photo
