Here is a selection of some of my works.” – JPS

old-people-funny-tshirts_01

The older people in this list might seem like peaceful and dignified elders, but only until you see their raunchy and totally inappropriate T-shirts. Why on earth are they wearing them?

Super_Flemish_Superheroes_Get_An_Make_over_Inspired_by_Flemish_Paintings_2014_01

French photographer Sacha Goldberg doesn’t take himself too seriously and we love it! With a review from his mother that states “he is certainly the best photographer of his neighborhood” in his about section, his exaggerated humility is endearing. Goldberg became an internet sensation with his superhero grandmother photo series and is back again with an equally funny concept. He transformed superheroes, princesses, and the cast of Star Wars into portraits you might see on the wall of a castle and it’s pretty amazing.
