Frozen In Time, Discovering XVIII Century Palace Sanssouci by Anton Shebetko

Sanssouci is a palace in Potsdam, near Berlin. Its French name translates as “without concerns”, meaning “without worries” or “carefree.” It was intended to be the summer palace for Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, as a place for relaxation vs.  a seat of power. “The location and layout of Sanssouci above a vineyard reflected the pre-Romantic ideal of harmony between man and nature, in a landscape ordered by human touch.” — More about Sanssouci In this photo editorial, Ukranian artist Anton Shebetko studies the relationship between ourselves and this timeless space. Exploring our perception of the [Rococo-style] sculptures, the way we interact with this frozen-in-time-place that was conceived for the joy of the senses.
