Yes, it’s world dictators cuddling stuffed toys

Chunlong Sun has given the world’s most notorious politicians and dictators a softer side with a somewhat creepy-but-cool photo series. The Chinese photographer and digital retoucher used people who had the same body characteristics as the dictators, snapped their photos, then took the leaders from other photos ‘and fairly seamlessly made composites’.

The result? Nightmarish portraits of Fidel Castro cuddling a stuffed alligator and Mobutu Sesé Seko posing with a stuffed cow!
