i love these ultra french girls (girl? wish i could read french) by parisian born comic artist Jean-Pierre Gibrat
superheroes placed in political & wartime scenes by Agan Harahap (though i’m not sure if vader qualifies as a superhero)
it’s actually pretty funny to see superman standing amongst the allied soldiers (in that scene, neuschwanstein castle in bavaria). there is a book called the monuments men which i have been meaning to pick up, which tells the story of the group of curators, archivists, artists & art historians who set out to find all the art and other treasures that the nazis had looted and hidden across europe during WWII. check out their official website, it’s super interesting.
Hastings Park, 16 July 1955 (2008) is from Stan Douglas’s project Humor, Irony, and the Law, in which the artist re-stages historic moments of unrest in his native Vancouver. This particular image recreates a scene at a Vancouver horse track in 1955 using models dressed in period clothing selected to match the look of color film at that time. The models were photographed between takes while they were off guard. This image is composed of 30 separate shots.
