Why it's awesome: The sculpture-based photography gene showcases sculpture built primarily for the purpose of being photographed. Like many genes on Artsy, it has an impressive breadth of artists and artworks, from Luis Gispert to Ai Weiwei and Sharon Core. It reminds us that photographing artwork is a genre in itself, and an important one at that.
