The incredible photo series titled “Colosses” by Fabrice Fouillet captures landscapes that have been changed forever, but not in the way you would expect. The statues that have altered these landscapes were created as religious, timeless monuments, but Fouillet’s main interest is in how the landscape surrounding the statues have changed.
