The not so super heroes

17 Apr

Just another bite of art, dark and melancholic this time, but so very real.  Sums up our life lately, non? Which is why I was so attracted to French photographer Benjamin Bechet’s latest series “I Am Winnie the Pooh”.  Bechet kidnaps some of the most famous superheroes and children’s icons from their fairytale settings and strips them of their supernatural powers by showing them in real life situations.

“The project serves as a reminder that what you see is never what you get, that people are always more complex, that each identity is only partial and that we are all one, none and a hundred thousand.” Benjamin Bechet  for HuffPost UK Culture.

Watch and love.
