Photographer Philip Bonneau re-imagines comic book superheroes

Super Heroes reimagined

Atlanta artist Philip Bonneau is so addicted to superheroes and villains that he has found a way to incorporate them into his professional life. His new exhibit, “Heroes + Villains #2,” opens at the MISTER Community Center next week for a month-long run.

Art and photography have always been part of Bonneau’s life. His mother was an artist and Bonneau, who is gay and has lived in Georgia his whole life, studied at the Savannah College of Art & Design.

Ultimately, he got a degree in graphic design, but found that photography isn’t something he can or wants to get out of his system. Last May, he did some soul searching and dabbled in photography over the summer.
