Super Flamands à la School Gallery
Sacha Goldberger is a photographer who relies on fine details to create an image. One of his recent exhibits in Paris, entitled “Super Flamands,” blends our expectations of Renaissance costuming with our knowledge of characters in popular culture: its all in the details.
The names of the portraits have been chosen to reflect how a superhero’s portrait might have been named during the Renaissance. See if you can guess to which superhero these names belong:
« Portrait of a masked man with a spider embroidered on his chest. »
« Pale young woman surrounded by animals. »
« Portrait of an officer in a black helmet. »
« Portait of a man wearing a gold armor. »
« Portrait of a very hairy man. »
« Portrait of a man wearing a S on his chest »
If you guessed Spiderman, Snow White, Darth Vader, C3P0, Chewbacca, and Superman, you were correct!
