« Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20′s and 30′s that value independent thinking, counter-culture » (Urban Dictionnary)

 

28-year-old photographer Leo Caillard‘s latest project, called “Hipster in Stone”, combines his photography and Photoshoppin’ skills, imagining what it would be like if ancient Greek sculpture were hipsters. The project started when Leo saw at the Louvre some nude statues representing the ideal body figures, and he wondered, “but what were the Greeks wearing when they weren’t posing for sculptors?”

Enjoy some of his pictures and below a video of the making of!

And here’s a look at how the Photoshop editing is done:

This time of year is all about tradition, isn’t it? (Allright, I am not the one to talk, celebrating Christmas early this week end and not planning to attend a mass)

Still, the season for giving and all that. A time of year where you can reflect on the year that’s drawing to a close and think about all the things you might want to change as the new year dawns. (That’s right, I’m referring to the New Year Resolution we all know we are going to hold seriously….)

Many of us will spend time with our families, and maybe eat a bit too much. Drink too much. Perhaps a few too many refreshing beverages will be consumed at times of the day when, at any other time of year, people might raise an eyebrow…

It’s also the time when you might think about extending a little seasonal goodwill to others less fortunate, and this week is a time when you can combine that tradition with another.

Yes guys, I’m talking about THE Christmas Jumper Day!

Long derided, it’s become the epitome of seasonal cool (True story, we were in a club in London last Saturday, the number of old-fashioned-hand-knitted-Christmas-Jumpers was unbelievable, and unbelievably successful, like a girl magnet).

This year, the 14th December is Christmas Jumper Day and at Save The Children you can show the world you care, in all your Fair Isle finery.

So this morning, I woke up (waking up on a Friday morning keeps getting harder as the holidays are drawing closer… and the wine flowing quicker!) and properly dressed for the occasion.

Arrived wearing my nice little Christmas jumper in the midst of our Equity Trading Floor, expecting everyone to be in a cheerful Christmas spirit, with carols playing aloud and sents of musc and cinnamon falling upon us.

What a disappointment! Can’t believe I’m probably the only one out of about 800 other bankers on the floor to think that was a great idea (but then, i was deprived of the opportunity to participate in Movember so the guys probably feel like they’ve already done their good deed!)

So, if you want to help the Save the Children Foundation, you can do a donation here (alternatively, if you just want to do something nice, buy me a drink or even better, like Column Capital D’s Facebook page!).

Cherry Mistmas!
