How Would Superheroes Have Looked In The 17th Century?
16th century – a beautiful time full of people wearing ruffs. Huuuuge, remarkable ruffs:
Those ruffs stayed in memory. Also in the memory of the French photographer Sacha Goldberger who was inspired by the paintings hanging in his family house has created a quirky photo series that perfectly expresses the timeless quality of some of our favorite superheroes and villains – by re-imagining them as 17th-century Flemish portrait models.
Goldberger was staging the series for the 5 years. Yes – those photos are not Photoshop! (except Yoda of course) “Super Flamands” photo series shows real super-hero costumes, which manage to stay faithful both to the hero and to the historical period, are real, and so are the heroic look-alike models wearing them.
