Riddle me this, riddle me that, what do you get when you combine all your favourite super-heros, fairytale and Star Wars characters with baroque portraiture? I will let you think for a second. Ok, yes you’re right… you get pure AWESOMENESS. Excuse my butchering of the English language, but I get giddy with excitement when I see the work of Sacha Goldberger in general, and this particular series just connects with so many things I have loved since childhood. Yes I was a nerd and loved painting and art history, and yes I was awesome and read comic books, fairytales and loved Star Wars. I know you’re gagging to know more about me, but lets talk about Sacha Goldberger.

Born in Paris France, bla bla bla….fast forward a bit… and that’s how Sacha became famous, one of my absolutely favourite contemporary portrait photographers and „certainly the best photographer in the neighbourhood” according to his mother Gaby. I agree Gaby. There is a depth in Sacha’s work that make me always want to look further and further into every photo. He manages to combine, classic elegance with a spoon of sexy satire, some melancholy with a 2 cups of surrealism and always, always a generous helping of truly awesome lighting.

The featured series entitled “Super Flemish” not only puts these iconic characters in a different time-space, but explores their own fragility “..tired of having to save the world without respite, promised to a destiny of endless immortality, forever trapped in their character.” as Sacha describes. Ok enough talking, now go check his work. You’re welcome!

Sacha, I salute you. And I hope you do a portrait of me one day too because I am the Green Lantern. Seriously.
