About the Book


What will you find inside No. Superhero

Full of mystique and intrigue and set in the artist’s native, rural Scandinavia, this series of images follows the protagonist on a silent, solitary journey that emphasises complex emotions. From the playful, to the dark, to the eccentric, each scene is depicted through a lens that captures childhood nostalgia with the hero as an ordinary man.

The viewer can take a lot away from the images created by Joergensen. Not only can we appreciate the beauty in the landscape and subjects captured in this photography, but also the darker and more intriguing undertones.

The photographer views Superman as a metaphor for taking risks all the while conflicted with the potentially impending failure. This offers a sense of tension to the work that can be palpable to the viewers of this collection.
