We Can Be Heroes

We Can Be Heroes
Gear | Pic
"We Can Be Heroes" by Dubai-based photographer Martin Beck, challenges the stereotype of Superheroes revealing them not as unrealistic comic book characters but rather as regular people who, even through their own personal struggles, have the potential to become heroes in their own way by helping others, capturing normal everyday hardworking people dressed as superheroes. More images after more.
"The subject matter being those folk who didn’t quite make the grade at superhero school and are, like most of us, living their lives doing the day-to-day chores and their best to live a happy life while providing for their loved ones. Along with this gritty and humor laden style of photography, there is a very important message too. When we think of Superhero’s our initial thoughts are of perfect bodies and beautiful faces, in reality most of us are not like that. However, that doesn’t have to mean that we cannot still be heroes. Each of us in our own way can be heroes to our family, friends, colleagues and we all have the potential to help others."
