In his series Super Flemish, French photographer Sacha Goldberger presents portraits of superheroes
and sci-fi characters decked out in elaborate 17th century-era garb. Inspired by painters of the Flemish school, the artist uses 17th-century techniques of light and
shadow to illustrate both nobility and fragility in his subjects.
Before heading off to the portrait studio, Chewbacca spent hours getting his hair just right. Unfortunately for Chewie, it was humid and windy out, and everything just kind of frizzed up on him.
The Joker is just as menacing in the 17th century as he is in the 20th and 21st centuries. He was barely able to stop causing chaos in Gotham long enough to slouch through this entire sitting. But we have to ask: why so serious, Mr. Joker?
Fresh from fighting crime on the streets of Gotham, Batman and Robin stop by the studio for a rare joint portrait. Their costumes are as elaborate and masterful as their crime-fighting skills. Alfred was nowhere to be found.
