Richard Dailey has illustrated in photographic close-ups a chapter from the repertory of antique sculpture by cataloguing the gods and goddesses, the heros and heroines of antiquity, wreathed in their aura of beauty and truth. The images are presented traditionally in familiar album form: photo albums, nature studies, practical illustrated manuals, museum catalogues. Curiously, the effect of these close-ups contradicts the traditional perception of classical sculpture; their individuality, enhanced by the ages, emerges here from the lineaments of classical expression.
