How come most of the statues I find to photograph are of men? Women have made the greatest impact on humanity, yet it seems that only men are immortalized in bronze, marble, and stone. The gender role of man as warrior continues to survive into the 21st century.

An explanation on how I achieved this effect in my story You Too Can Shoot Infrared Film!Created using my Holga 120N with Efke IR820 B&W Infrared film. Photo scanned with an Epson Perfection V700. No digital manipulation other than dust & scratch removal.
