SuperHistory by Agan Harahap

This Jakarta based photographer (known for his pictures of animals roaming the aisles of grocery stores), comes back with a new series where he uses photographs from historical moments (mostly from WWII) and forges them with iconic comic heroes and villains. The forgery itself is reminiscent of the methods used during the war by both sides (and later during the cold war), in order to manipulate public opinion. An ironic and eerie reminder on how the media can be deceiving and easily controlled by hidden agendas (in this case Darth Vader's). For your manipulated brain: Agan Harahap.
