Photographer Documents Secret Life Of Superhero Toys
Have you ever made a stop-motion Lego movie? Well, photographer Edy Hardjo, who goes by the pseudonym Hrjoe, has done something similar: awesome looking scenes with superhero action figures! Watch as Earth‘s mightiest heroes pee on a wall, deal with Hulk getting a facehugger and chase after Black Widow‘s discarded bra! There‘s even a particularly gruesome encounter between the green giant and Wolverine.
How does Hrjoe do it? Lighting and composition, mostly. Miniatures have to be arranged, put on stands, and even partially disassembled to achieve desired effect. He also does some photo editing to make the figures look a little plastic and to remove all the action figure joins, as well as stands that keep the toys in place.
Considering that he‘s still using less CGI than actual movies, he does pretty well.
