“What if the Hulk was a Duke?” French photographer Sacha Goldberger’s photography series “Super Flamands” (“Super Flemish”) reimagines comic superheroes and sci-fi stars in 17th century-style portraits from the Flemish school of painting.
"Portrait of a masked man with a spider embroidered on his chest"
The photographs show an amazing attention to detail, featuring meticulous period costumes, and simulating 17 century lighting techniques “to illustrate nobility and fragility of the super powerful of all times.”
"Portrait of a couple of masked men who do not look at themselves"
These photos are hyperrealistic, yet amazingly, were made the old fashioned way. While digital imaging was used to add some final polish, Goldberger pulled off these portraits using months of live makeup, prosthetics and costuming.
