Beijing based photographer, Chunlong Sun, has captured a remarkable series showing us the soft side of the world’s most evil dictators as they hug their plush stuffed animals, or did he?

Sun had a series of his friends dress up as the leaders, photographed them clutching the toys, and then replaced their heads so smoothly it is almost imperceptible.
