black & white previews
All colour images are also available as black & white prints. The b&w previews offered here are produced by simply desaturating the image via Javascript. The result is a neutral b&w preview which may appear flat or too dark/bright. Before printing, however, each image is individually assessed and adjusted for best contrast, tonal quality, and dynamic range.

Imperia statue at the harbour in Constance (Konstanz)
Imperia statue at the harbour in Constance (Konstanz)
This statue commemorates the time of the Council in Constance between 1414 and 1418 to resolve the issues between the king, the pope and the counter pope. At the time of the council, the presence of the cardinals and royal legates led to a manifold increase in prostitution in the city. This statue therefore shows the real power at the time: the prostitute Imperia that holds the naked pope in her left and the naked king in her right.
