In real life, do superheroes exist? Apparently so, and photographer Peter Tangen has the proof. At first, The Real Life Superhero Project was conceived as an avenue to shine light on a new breed of activism and altruism, through a photographic installation to benefit the established organizations the superheroes believe in. But as more people were brought into the wholly volunteer project, largely through Tangen’s infectious enthusiasm, the scope and purpose expanded exponentially. So who are these modern day heroes? According to Tangen, "they are our neighbors, our friends, our family members. They are artists, musicians, athletes, and yes, politicians. "Anonymous and selfless, they choose every day, to make a difference in the world around them. Whether it be feeding the hungry, comforting the sick, or cleaning up their neighborhoods, they save real lives in very real ways. These are not 'kooks in costumes,' as they may seem at first glance. They are, simply put, a radical response… to a radical problem."
