Family Portrait von Sacha Goldberger – Follow-up zu Superhelden im Stil niederländischer Maler des 17. Jahrhunderts

Der Fotograf Sacha Goldberger hat mit „Family Portrait ein Follow-up zu seiner Serie „Super Flemish“ mit Superhelden im Stil der niederländischen Maler des 17. Jahrhundert rausgebracht. Ist zwar „nur“ Recycling einer schönen (und viral gegangen) Idee, aber ich hab mir seine Super-Familien trotzdem gerne angeschaut.

Sacha wants to confront these icons of American culture with contemporary painters of the Flemish school. The collection demonstrates the use of 17 century techniques counterpointing light and shadow to illustrate nobility and fragility of the super powerful of all times. It also invites you to celebrate the heroes of your childhood. 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.
The superheroes often live their lives cloaked in anonymity. These portraits give them a chance to « fix » their narcissism denied. By the temporal disturbance they produce, these images allow us to discover, under the patina of time, an unexpected melancholy of those who are to be invincible.
