Solitary Superheroes Find Quiet Moments in Stunning Landscapes

French photographer Benoit Lapray believes that “a photograph has to tell us a story,” and he achieves just that in his series, entitled The Quest for the Absolute. The playful collection of portraits offers insight into the world of well-known superheroes, including Captain America, Spiderman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and more.

Lapray digitally blends each hero into stunning natural landscapes. Viewers get to see how the many heroic characters spend their free time when they are not fighting crime or saving the world. The meditative collection of portraits features the quiet moments when a superhero is by him or herself, flying over a crystal clear lake, staring out across the ocean, or simply resting on a grassy hill. As animated as many of these men and women are while in the spotlight, Lapray creates a behind-the-scenes world where even heroes get to have a few moments of solitude and rest.
