Baroque sculpture in photography

Columne - Sculpture of the 17th and 18th centuries in photography - new exhibition in Gallery Koprivnica from 18 May to 20 June 2021.

Besides the aesthetics of the sculptor, includes the aesthetics of the photographer. In this case, statues of the roadside Madonna and five saints, St. Sebastian, St. Charles Borromeo, St. John Nepomuk, and St. Florian, come two layers of interpretations. First, the sculpture has 17th and 18th-century sacral heritage, and secondly, the documentary photography of different poetics. The most successful images become an author's fine art photography with new aesthetic value. Photography of the 19th-century was recognized early by the history of art, protection, and preservation, as a medium of research and scientific discipline in the study, documentation, and presentation of historical monuments.
