Sebastien Barre has created a virtual walking tour of all 17 of J. Seward Johnson’s hyperrealistic bronze sculptures currently installed all around downtown Albany.

Johnson’s work is often described as a cross between George Segal and Norman Rockwell, and it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it does tend to be wildly popular. Regardless of how you feel about the sculptures, Sebastien’s photos bring a whole other dimension to the work. (Then again, I’m pretty sure he could photograph the phone book and make it look interesting.)

The public art installation, sponsored by the Albany BID, will be up through September.
