Fremont Troll

Also known as The Troll or the Troll Under the Bridge this is one of the larger sculptures I have photographed. He lurks under the George Washington Memorial Bridge, clutching an actual VW Beattle, as if he had just swiped it from the highway above. Made in 1990, the sculpture is 18 feet (5.5 metres) high and weighs about 6 tonnes. He’s made of steel, wire and of course concrete. Made from such materials the sculpture isn’t particularly colourful so a processing to black and white seemed to be most fitting. I think it makes him look more intimidating. Happy Halloween everyone.
