This Is How Real-World Heroes Look Like… And It’s Incomparably Better Than The Movies!

Brandon Cawood is a photographer who’s given real-life heroes the glam treatment in his series Not All Wear Capes. In an interview withF Stoppers, Mr. Cawood explained what prompted him to launch his project:

I wanted to take first responders… and I wanted to make a series out of them but in a kind of movie poster/video game cover style. I felt it was a way I can kind of pay my respects to the people in the community who do this job day in and day out.

And the effect is amazing, even without the capes, masks, silly costumes and other movie superhero paraphernalia.
