“Solitude is evident when looking at this photographic work for the first time. I therefore chose to develop these infamous characters from American comics, now recognised world-
wide for their fight against evil, striving for freedom and justice, alone, and in the middle of the country-side.” says Benoit Lapray about this series.

Photographer Benoit Lapray is highly influenced by his love of superheroes, this is evident in his project “The Quest for the Absolute.” On Behance, he showcases two parts of the series and states that the series is about loneliness and introspection. To do this, Benoit juxtaposes the mighty heroes in desolate landscapes. Benoit says that these photos embody “the contemporary revival of romanticism.”

He shot many of the images in front of the French Alps but there are lots of other locations depicted in the series.
