These amazing life-sized sculptures of everyday people were made by the influential American sculptor Duane Hanson, and they are part of a current exhibition celebrating his 30-year career as an artist at the Van de Weghe Fine Art gallery.

Duane Hanson portrays middle-class Americans in an incredibly detailed manner. The sculptures are regular, everyday people you would see on the street, from a woman carrying too many shopping bags to a tired tourist with a beer gut hanging out and the typical tourist couple equipped with caps and cameras.

The exhibition run until May 22nd.
