Statues – Photomontage by Rob Laynton

I love these old gravestones in local cemeteries; they have a beauty an sometimes an eroticism all of their own. Alas many of them are falling into disrepair or have been vandalized, so over the last few years I have taken photos of the more interesting ones, especially with an eye to this kind of montage work. This image is one that I had not planned but arose as I was looking at various images and elements. What I like is the contrast between the shiny sleek figure on the left and the the rougher stone figure on the right, creating a surreal and erotic image. I do not close my mind to creativity after the image is taken, but continue to think of different ways of cropping or enhancing images.
