Portrait Awards 2015 - Superheroes
As a mother and fine art photographer, I watched my son and his friends trying out roles. The boys had their noses pressed up against the glass of adulthood, peering at a world they dreamed of entering soon. Their superhero avatars could save the day, and helped them navigate the paradox of being small in a world that values power. In this project I have photographed boys between the ages of six and ten, seeking to capture glimpses of the men they will someday become.
