Superheroes If They Were From the 16th Century

It’s science fiction meets history of art

It’s time to celebrate your favourite superheroes of your childhood and re-imagine them if they were from the 16th Century.

It’s science fiction meets history of art all thanks to French photographer Sacha Goldberger.

Sacha confronts these icons of American culture with contemporary painters of the Flemish school. This super collection demonstrates the use of 17th century techniques counterpointing light and shadow to illustrate nobility and fragility of the super powerful of all times.

These characters have become icons to reveal their humanity: tired of having to save the world without respite, promised to a destiny of endless immortality, forever trapped in their character.
