The Quest for the Absolute by Benoit Lapray

“What do our comic book heroes do when they are not face to face with the enemy or trying to save the life of a person in distress?  With his series of portraits entitled “The Quest for the Absolute” French photographer, Benoit Lapray, attempts to answer.  He captures and freezes the moment during which the famous vigilantes are not in the action and presents them here as lonely beings who wander in nearly deserted landscapes. 
Maybe it is for taking their strength in contact with the elements that they are momentarily withdrawn from civilisation? But perhaps they are quite simply on a quest to find themselves?”
