Batman’s final days captured in bleak, beautiful photo series

Travis Durden, the French artist who so beautifully reimagined Star Wars characters as classic Greek sculptures, has turned his attention to a darker subject — Batman’s eventual demise.

Collaborating with photographers who document eerie, abandoned locations across the globe, Durden used 3D software to digitally insert the Dark Knight, the Batmobile, the Batpod and his hero’s cowl into the decaying environments. “I wanted the final images as real as possible,” he explained, “as if Batman really spent time in these abandoned places.”

The result is a bleak, almost post-apocalyptic, portrait of Batman’s solitary final days.

I really what to read the story about how Bruce ended up alone in this post apocalypse landscape… and why he keeps wearing the cape and cowl as he haunts the crumbling remains of civilization

I’m thinking it’s like I Am Legion, but with Batman.

I’d be more impressed if this wasn’t all photoshopped art

@NoFace

Yeah no kidding, I kinda liked the thumbnail of the mask half-submerged in the sand but the actual photo is… it doesn’t even make sense.

And to combine Burton’s beautiful Batmobile with Nolan’s craptastic Batman is something I can’t ignore.

Bat home was kind of funny, I’ll give the artist that. Nothing else.

Awww, someone smashed his Bat Piano and now he looks sad and lonely :[
