Superheroes in Their Old Age

An ambitious and touchingly creative Photographer shot a series of portraits that project how Superheroes will look like in their Old Age. For us, Superheroes are invincible, powerful people/creatures that will never perish. These photos will change the way you see your Superheroes for life. It’s easy to connect with these because they look like one of us; aging, Old and performing everyday chores. It gets us to feel all the more connected to these sueprheroes because it becomes easier to identify with them. Martin Beck (photographer) had a very clear idea what he wanted to do with the idea of Superheroes and twist it a little. The Photographer has added a touch of humour is these photographs which not only makes them hilarious, but also lovable. The portraits were sold like hot cakes at an exhibition in the Middle East. With Avengers all out and amazing, it will be quite a treat to watch these Superheroes young on screen and old in these photographs. Like they say, “Age leaves no one.” (Not even superheroes). Give it a look and let us know how you feel about it.

 

Photographer Martin Beck has titled the project “We Can Be Heroes.

“When we think of Superheroes, we think of perfect bodies and beautiful faces, achieving unachievable feats.”

“Despite our flaws and failures, each of us, in our own ways, can be heroes to our family, our friends, our colleagues and we all have the potential to help others.”

“The subject matter are the folks who feel they didn’t quite make it at a Superhero school and are, like most of us, living their lives, doing their day-to-day chores, trying to live a happy life while providing for their loved ones.”

“Everyone is a Superhero.”

We must say that the photographer has done a swell job mixing Old Age with Superheroes. It’s one heady cocktail!
