Amazing Photos of Huge Monuments Seen From Surprising Perspectives

French photographer Fabrice Fouillet’s ongoing project Colosses is more than just a survey of statues. It is, in his words, “a study of the landscapes embracing these monumental commemorative statues.” Fouillet traveled around the world to find enormous states of artistic, political, or religious importance, and considered them in relation to their surroundings: “How can they fit into the landscapes, despite their excessive dimensions and their fundamental symbolic and traditional functions?” Here are ten of his most striking photos; check out the entire project at his website.
