Sad Portraits Of Celebrity Impersonators

What is it about this portrait series by photographer Nicolas Silberfaden that makes them so touching?

Maybe it’s because we only see impersonators when they’re in character, and these photos show them as the vulnerable human beings they are beneath the costume.

Perhaps we actually expect them to act like the characters they’re portraying at all times, even though we know they’re all dressed up and playing a role.

Whatever it is that makes them so touching also makes me want to hunt down whoever made Superman cry and bop ‘em in the nose!
