If you are like me you know what superheroes are doing for the brief 120 minutes that they are on the silver screen, but surely they have a life after the movie, and they face the same situations as we all do, don’t they? Photographer Edy Hardjo decided to find out.

In his photos our favorite superheroes face jealousy, bodily needs and human emotions. Not without a healthy sense of humor.

I wondered how the photos look so real. I guess using 1/6 detailed figures (like Hot Toys, Enterbay, 3A and alike, they those are not cheap and can easily go over $200-$300) have a big contribution to that, but Edy also told DIYP that he makes small modifications to the figures: “especially the hair. I change original the sculpted hair with rooted hair, to make it looked more alive. My friend do it for me, he is the expert“. And those modifications are well worth the effort.

While the majority of the image is achieved with props and lighting, some of the joints and support is removed in post processing.

    Actually, seeing this is rather pleasing. There’s a whole bunch of people I know who have done action figure photography, myself included. For those who may knock on people who do it, keep in mind, doing photography with action figures and models are great practice in some of the aspects for photography, such as composition, lighting and using depth of field.

    But the person who I can think of who is a master at it is Mark Hogancamp of “Marwencol” fame. I know he started it as a means of therapy following the traumatic beating he received, but Marwencol has long since gained a following and has a bit of a life of its own. Also, Michael Paul Smith’s Elgin Park is another great example, but with car models and scratch built miniatures.

    Who pulls their pants down far enough that their cheeks are bare and hanging out? I guess super heros?

    The headline for this story should read “superheroes” instead of “superheros.”
