Hilarious Photos of Superheroes and Villains Engaged in Life’s most Mundane Activities #ArtTuesday

When Ottawa-based photographer Daniel Picard goes about his daily life, he’s not only thinking about the real world; he’s thinking about the Death Star, Gotham City, and Superman’s Metropolis. For Picard, mundane rituals like riding the elevator or visiting the loo don’t have to be tedious. Instead, they’re opportunities to imagine the what superheroes and comic book villains are doing when we’re not looking. Figures & Statues, an ongoing series published as Figure Fantasy, is his investigation of the ordinary experiences that every fictional character must at some point or another have to face.

Figures & Statues, suggests Picard, was born almost by accident when he used a robot to stand in for a model during a time-sensitive shoot. The result was unexpectedly beguiling, and from there, he moved on to working with more action figures and collectibles, including the lifelike creations of Sideshow Collectibles, who he put in absurd and endearing circumstances around his neighborhood.
