What if Superman was born in the sixteenth century? And what if the Hulk was a Duke?
French photographer Sasha Goldberger has created a series of photographs where he combines American childhood heroes with the Flemish tradition of portraiture. Mimicking the poses of the Low Lands nobility, we now see them quietly seated. Together with a team of more than 100 collaborators Goldberger dressed these modern day superheroes (& villains) in 17th-century versions of their costumes. By using sober lighting, he adds an extra dimension to these characters; one of stillness instead their usually high energy, action-packed lives.
