Lonely Outdoor Portraits of Superheroes by Photographer Benoit Lapray

jpeg

What do superheroes do when they’re not busy fighting bad guys and saving the world from destruction? Perhaps they’re drawing strength alone in the peace and quiet of the great outdoors. That’s the premise of French photographer Benoit Lapray‘s photo-manipulation series “The Quest for the Absolute.”

The project shows portraits of famous superheroes lost in their own thoughts somewhere in nature. Lapray writes that, “Perhaps they are quite simply on a quest to find themselves?”
