'Starry Flight' ( 2013 ) by Lenny Gilmore from my series called ‘First Flights’
For my second image called ‘Starry Flight’, I’m continuing my look at modern hero worship. Heros have typically been depicted as a 1 in a million, near physically perfect person, who alone is more capable of fixing humanity’s problems then the rest of humanity combined. I find that portrayal is inspirational but also frustrating since we live in a world that is in dire need of the cooperation and team work of all its residents.
My first image in this series ‘How Time Flies’ showed a cynical ( but playful ) view of an exceptionally strong but lone hero overwhelmed and incapable of handling the problems around him. ‘Starry Flight’ flips that and shows a hopeful scene of the strength found in numbers.
