Ever wonder what your favorite superheroes would look like reimagined as Flemish painting? Yeah,I haven’t either, but now I know, and they look pretty awesome!!
French photographer Sacha Goldberger captured the heroic portraits by posing two-dozen cosplayers in grand, Flemish tradition. His series, “Super-Flemish,” debuted at the Grand Palais in Paris last weekend along with this description:
“What if Superman was born in the sixteenth century? And what if the Hulk was a Duke? How might Van Eyck have portrayed Snow White? Sacha’s discovery of these characters, which goes back to childhood, gave birth to a desire to re-appropriate them, to take them back to a time forming the cornerstone of modern western art.”
