Because even the forces of the dark need a best friend. I guess that’s what was going on in the head of artist Sacha Goldberg ((Goldberger, according to a different source.)) The name might ring a bell, because it was not that long ago when we featured his work.
Remember the grandma who was depressed? Thanks to her grandson, she was able to cope with her situation by dressing up as a granny superhero and having photo shoots. Now if that can only work for all of us!
Anyhow, we featured Mamika and her partner not long ago, and I really had fun putting that entry together. It’s not your usual superhero post, and the age of the subjects just made it more interesting.
Sacha Goldberg is back, this time with a grandpa superhero named Dark Papouka. He has a new series called “The Darks, Part II”, and he’s thrown in a bit of a treat for Star Wars fans as well: Darth Vader.
Who would have thought that Darth Vader and an aging “real-life” superhero would hit it off? If Sacha’s photos are to be believed, though, they really are good friends, going through life as a pair.
I spent a considerable amount of time just looking at the photos again and again, and I am amazed by the details that have gone into the photos. I guess the artist got really inspired by his success with Mamika, and that has overflowed into this next set of photos. Below, you can find the gallery of some of the coolest times that Dark Papouka and Darth Vader have spent together. From changing a flat tire – Darth Vader does the job, by the way – to playing video games to simply reading magazines, enjoying a moment of silence to Darth Vader in the toilet…ooops!
Isn’t that pretty cool work? For more photos, visit Design Taxi.
The book is probably going to be available by March of 2012, and if you liked the Mamika photo series, you will be pleased to know that a movie is coming out soon. Now that should be really interesting.
