Ole Marius Joergensen: No.Superhero

Artist’s Statement:

No(rwegian) Superhero. At the age of seven, I became obsessed with super heroes. It was the only thing I could think of. I loved their meaningful and adventurous life. I was taken by their colorful costumes. My mother even made me one. As children we are driven to pursue the unattainable, but to no avail. I remained the same little boy chasing my dream. When I grew up I decided to make superman the subject of a photo series. My project shows the character of Superman as a real human being, going after the impossible mission. His big dream is to fly, regardless of the consequences- it’s trials and error.

Artist’s Bio:
