The Bather


I have worked with using pieces from master paintings in my composites before and when I came across this beautiful painting by Jean-Leon Gerome called “A Roman Slave Market”, I knew I wanted to use the slave as a bather in one of my abandoned locations.  This painting is from the open access images from The Walters Art Museum. You can see the original here.  The location is kept a secret because it is one of Abandoned America Leap of Faith trips where the location is not disclosed at the time you sign up for it and we are asked not disclose afterwards.  Photographed with my Fuji X-T1.
