I'll come up with something in a minute.

Art talk…

One of the things I greatly love in medieval art is when the artists would paint biblical scenes, but being ignorant as to what biblical stuff should look like, recast it in their present day and have everyone dressed in contemporary clothes and current gear.

As a result you end up looking at a painting for half a minutes trying to figure out why a chained beggar is standing before a bishop/merchant and who is flanked by a pair of knights, only to read the little panel and find it’s Jesus being brought before Pontius Pilate.

I often thought it would be neat to do a series photos of some biblical scenes that way, with everyone dressed in contemporary clothing. Have to find people who would want to do such silly things.
