Neighborhood Saints

Another photo project I'll probably never get around to:

Vieux Lyon, being an essentially untouched Renaissance town, has saints and Virgins looking out on nearly every street corner. [photo; don't know who this is. A guidebook to Lyon's saints and Virgins exists, en francais, but I haven't picked it up.]

I had the notion to go around and photograph a bunch of them, and lay them out in suitable-for-framing poster format (a la those Doors of Dublin or Chapel Hill Night Lights posters). I'll probably never get around to doing that, so feel free to steal my idea. So long as you give me one of your posters when you're done.

[photo: this is a Vierge Noire, a Black Madonna, in Le Puy-En-Velay, much older than St. Whoever above, and associated with the Templars. Cultariffic!]
