Emperor Constantine - Rome
Emperor Constantine

I worked on a television series for TVS called the History of Western Art.  It was an excellent series, made in the days when commercial tlevision companies had to make educational and arts programmes under the strict rules of their contracts.  We filmed all over Europe and spent some time in Rome.  These are the remnants of a huge statue of the Emperor Constantine in the courtyard of the Capitoline Museum in Rome.  Who wouldn't want to photograph such a seemingly accidental arrangement of artifacts?  It looks as though someone has said "Oh just leave them over there where they won't be in the way."  In this case the light was just right, a diffused overhead illumination with no hard shadows.

Camera:  Bronica ETRS, lens Zenzagon 50mm f/2.8, film stock Ektachrome.
