In the photographer's words: "At the center of this photograph stands one of my favorite art pieces, the Winged Victory of Samothrace.  The unique aspect of the photo, however, is the variety of people coming, going, and stopping near Winged Victory.  Approximately 6 million people visit the Louvre each year, and the blurred "phantom" visitors in the photo bring attention to the ever-changing stream of people of all ages and from all over the world who pass by Winged Victory's feet at any given moment."
