Benoit Lapray a French photographer captures superheroes in surreal moments, as they escape from their harsh realities. Benoit captures the true essence of being alone and the loneliness and isolation often endured by our favorite heroes. Step inside the picture and feel the turmoil of living in a world that doesn't understand or relate to you.
"I think it's pretty easy to imagine superheroes as lonely. Because they are different, and they have a big charge on their shoulders, so I guess they need to be alone sometime to recover a kind of serenity and to remember why they fight."
The setting of these breathtaking photos was captured along the French Alps because Benoit felt that the heroes should be portrayed in nature instead of the hustle and bustle of the city. He uses a large variety of techniques to capture these fictional heroes while photoshopping some of DC's and Marvel's promotional photos into the setting. While other photos used live models!
