LA is known for swathes of unrealistically beautiful people cruising its streets, but Nicolas Silberfaden, an Argentinian photographer, unearthed a whole other subculture of street prowlers: celebrity impersonators. He then dragged ten of his favourites to his studio and asked them to look as depressed as possible (which must have been difficult for them, having presumably just received their first paid work in a while). From a de-elasticated-looking Elastic Girl to a clinically obese Rambo, Silberfaden attempts to show that the superheroes and fictional movie characters do really exist (not literally), and they too have suffered from the global recession; it’s a tough time to be a mermaid looking after your family, working long hours in your mermaid office and getting your kids through Under the Sea school.
