Nerdtastic Renaissance Art
These breathtaking photos depicting superheroes and Star Wars characters from the Renaissance period are the brainchild of French photographer Sacha Goldberger. The exhibit, titled “Super Flemings,” aims to appropriate the American idols by creating a tie to European culture and history.
Goldberger’s creation are simply breathe-taking, for nerds and non-nerds alike. The details, from the costuming to the casting of models, create a sense of wonder, making the viewer ponder if these American heroes perhaps did originate in the Renaissance period. I have a feelings Goldberger’s work is going to inspire a lot of cosplayers…(at least I hope so!).
Below are just a few of the images, check out the full exhibit here.
