Russian photographer VSE OK has one very specific specialty: Photographing action figures in various (and sometimes disturbing) real world situations. The pictures are dark, funny, and probably aren’t going to win VSE OK any fans among these characters’ corporate overlords any time soon.
One of the cool things about VSE OK’s work is that many of the pictures are pieces of a series rather than just existing as standalone images. So in addition to the novelty of seeing a T-800 Terminator getting drunk at a bar, you also see a short story starring the character play out in a creative way. It’s fun!
You can check out a few samples of VSE OK’s work in the gallery at the top of the page, but to get the full effect you should probably head to the artist’s Tumblr here. And then you might want to call your mother and ask if she knows where any of your old action figures are.
