While the Shedim series of altered images by Aaron B. Heimlich is trying to make a statement, the pictures are somehow comical too. Every picture gets an editing treatment, with Heimlich substituting people with a Shedim -- a funny looking, black-colored character with a pair of pointy, elongated ears.
Heimlich shares that Shedim is the Hebrew word for benevolent demon, and by featuring it, he wishes to convey the message that demons are always out there and among us, and that we should always be aware of their presence. That being said, viewers see Shedim making an appearance in all the pictures; be it in the nursery, graduation ceremony, barber shop or even in one’s home.
