Grab your candy-cane latte and get ready for some Christmas cheer: the photographer Ed Wheeler has inserted himself into all your favorite works of art... as Santa Claus himself. The gleefully silly and surprisingly earnest self-portraits situate the Santa legend within beautifully anachronistic moments in the Italian Renaissance, French Impressionism, and even early Modernism. Wheeler and his bearded alter ego impersonate everyone from Venus to Jesus to the abandoned Greek maiden Ariadne. Take a look, and get ready to put out your stockings! Check Wheeler’s images out in person at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
