Photographer Edy Hardjo has taken today’s hottest superheroes figurine out of their element and dropped them into everyday situations, creating an incredible series of funny images. We’re in LOVE with the ‘Laughing Is Forbidden’ collection, which features the above-mentioned snaps, as well as many more.
Photography may only be a hobby for Hardjo, but his ability to come up with imaginative scenarios and make out-of-this-world characters human is uncanny and the results not only impressed us, but had us laughing, too.
Hailing from Medan, Indonesia, Hardjo’s background is in chemical engineering and, as he told Shutterbug, he only picked up a camera because he wanted to take better pics for his online store. We never would have guessed!
“I wanted to pose and put them in a scene that makes them look even more alive,” he said of his inspiration and he’s certainly achieved his goal. “I wanted to create a scene (picture) that tells a story - not just a simple boring pose.”
As for his fave figures to work with, Hardjo says “the characters I love the most for my work are the Avengers - especially the Hulk. It’s the nature of these characters that makes them more suitable for a funny scene.”
