Photo Mash-up: War Photography X Vintage Comics Project
Remember when Man of Steel was harangued for its Apocalyptic/ 9-11 imagery? This controversial project will be inevitably criticized for tastelessly mixing harrowing real-world events with silly, juvenile superhero fiction. It also highlights the photographic medium's inauspicious status as fodder for so much appropriation in postmodern art and design. A situation only exacerbated in the age of Google Image Search and Instagram. The photographs Butcher Billy chose are some of the most memorable images ever produced in the Twentieth Century, which is what helps make this project immediately disturbing, and so though-provoking.
