Heil Baby Hitler!
Babies are tyrants...especially this tiny Hitler
Tuesday, March 23, 2010 17:32 GMTCOPENHAGEN, Denmark (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Babies can be tiny tyrants.
Thats especially true in Nina Kleivans photographic series Potency, where she dressed up her then-infant daughter in military uniforms depicting the worlds most evil leaders.
Baby Faustina, whos now 11, can be seen donning Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Saddam Hussein, and Slobodan Milosevic-inspired costumes that Kleivan made herself.
She began the project while pregnant with her daughter when she was forced to four months of bedrest.
Kleivan sewed little costumes of the most evil men in history and then snapped her baby, but only released the images recently.
She was hoping to show how we all have evil within us, even small children.
With her background as a mini dictator, Kleivan jokes that her daughter could end up ruling Denmark with an iron fist someday.
However, she hopes Faustina and others see the terrible impact these figures had on the world and choose peace instead.
