In early January 2008, I took this photo of the sculpture titled "Social Consciousness" by Jacob Epstein (1954). It's located at the back entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Many times I have seen this sculpture in shadow so the full impact of the piece did not strike me until I photographed it on a clear day in late afternoon approaching the "golden hour".
Recently I went back to the raw photo file and with Lightroom and Photoshop, did some post-processing work on it. To make the sculpture photo stronger and really see the piece with all its strength and emotion, I removed the background clutter. Photography is a subtractive art form.
