The Fabrice Fouillet Colosses images add yet another dimension to the French photographer's portfolio. Each shot provides a look at some of the world's most iconic sculptures. However, the sculptures are not the sole focus of the pictures as Fouillet has also captured the landscapes surrounding the towering structures.

Fouillet traveled to Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine and Senegal for Colosses. He aimed to focus on how the historic landmarks interact with their natural environments, be it in the forms of expansive forests, cement steps or nearby houses.

The juxtaposition seen within the statues and both rural and city life is intriguing, enabling viewers to take in their physical presence and the way in which citizens adapt to their location.
