A series of photographs of people taking pictures of the replica of Michelangelo’s David in front of Palazzo Vecchio, Florence. Size 36 x 54 cm each.

Those who go to see the sculpture of David at Palazzo Vecchio can see that it is no ordinary work. They start taking photographs, but perhaps fail to actually see the sculpture. They rush to take pictures simply because David is there, right in front of them. This is not just ordinary fussing over yet another popular attraction, but a whole experience heightened by admiration, expectation and concentration. People have special feelings about it. They compose the frame and try to capture David’s image in the best possible way. For them, David is a cult.
