Our heroes never die. They go on and endure long after we are gone, so that they can inspire others. They are the common threads that are woven through our lives, connecting us, no matter our age. That’s probably why these images seem a bit shocking at first.
This series titled Not About Death from photographer Romina Ressia shows us the deaths of three fictional heroes. It’s morbid, but there is also something beautiful about seeing these heroes laid to rest. It’s almost a sigh of relief, seeing them at the rest that has been so hard earned. Superman, Snow White and Wonder Woman are gone. The world feels radically changed.
