I enjoy looking at sculpture and believe that statues are best placed outdoors where they can be part of the living environment.

This art photography book takes live models, asks them to pose in the images of statues in museums all over the world, then by means of digital wizardry transforms the ladies into statues. To do this, the models posed in front of green screens. A technical expert then used either stone effect or bronze effect to alter their bodies; a background was added which could be a room, a staircase, the outdoors or a fantasy setting. The results are interesting and quirky, sometimes spectacular.

While I'm not used to looking at so much nude female flesh, it's clear that the ladies are celebrating their beauty and strength. They are all from Arizona and must have enjoyed this unusual feature of life imitating art which is imitating life.

By Teresa DePoy (aka M. J. Joachim) - Published on Amazon.com
Receiving a small PDF sample of the book, and never one to turn down an offer to review (even if it does take me quite a while to get through all the books on my list), provided the books are sent to me free of charge via the Internet, I invited Lareau to send me a mobi or PDF copy of his latest work, Living Nude Statues. The file he sent via dropbox was huge. My computer gave me a few bells and whistles, warning me with a couple of red flags about it. I proceeded to do some computer scans and “poof,” it disappeared, without any trouble to my computer whatsoever.

Laureau is a photographer (an older man), specializing in nudity. Young women model for him. In Living Nude Statues, he poses them in the buff, then body paints them and poses them in different settings - on a vintage car, in front of an old brick building or window with curtains blowing wispily around them.
