As reported by Feature Shoot, this amusing series of photographs called Marbles features the testicles of classic Greek sculptures with the idea to explore "masculinity in the 21st century". The photographs are the work of London-based photographer Ingrid Berthon-Moine.
Her recent work Marbles is a collection of closely cropped shots of classic Greek sculptures and specific parts of the male anatomy were confident you can guess which parts taken in museums, gardens, and castles throughout Europe. The final photos were enlarged with the intention of producing an indecipherable photograph oscillating between landscape and medical documentation. The work explores masculinity in the 21st century, both the representation of it and the idea of ornamental masculinity which until now had been largely reserved to the female gender. It also looks at how masculinity has shifted over time, and how men have had to redefine their identity as society changes.
