11 Cabinet Cards Reimagined

Artist Alex Gross rejiggers and reconfigures cabinet cards from the late 19th and early 20th century, altering them to portray a contemporary comic book Super Hero. Cabinet cards were a commercial printed portrait standard back in the day. They were thin photographs mounted on cards measuring 4¼ by 6½ inches. As snapshot and personal photography became more accessible, the cabinet card disappeared. Have a favorite? Let us know in the comments below.
