Was machen Superhelden eigentlich so in ihrem Alltag? Die Frage haben sich sicherlich schon einige gestellt. Chow Kar Hoo hat sich diese Frage auch gestellt und in einem Fotoprojekt seine Antwort dazu visualisiert. So muss Spiderman beispielsweise Pakete durch die Gegend ziehen und Wolverine verdient sich sein Geld als Metzger. Batman hingegen schlendert einfach nur über den Markt und setzt sich eventuell zu Hellboy um etwas zu essen?

Statement von Chow Kar Hoo zu seiner Fotoserie:

Since childhood, Chow Kar Hoo has been influenced by the wave of marvel and DC cartoons and superhero movies. Undeniably, the superhero cultural phenomena unleashes most of our fascination of being a superhero. As an artist, Chow Kar Hoo realizes the superhero genre is something more than defeating villains or keeping the world in peace. He sees every superhero embodies the spirits and humanity ,and every hero has to deal with the interior of humanity, such as hopes, dreams, fear, frustration and other facets of human nature.

In this series, Chow Kar Hoo invited a pantheon of superheroes from the fantastical world to our reality word by unveiling the truth, such as political situation, social justice, environmental issues and the quest for happiness. With this surreal visualization, Chow wants to provoke our reflections of our current world with the superheroes iconography.
