Looking: Gregg Segal

24 Mar

Did you hear the one about Spider-man saving an autistic kid from a burning building?

In his Superheroes series, Gregg Segal has captured a few other things that ol’ spidey gets up to in his spare time. Like doing the laundry. He also managed to catch Superman vacuuming the house and cleaning the toilet, and WonderWoman sweeping her yard.

Segal’s images are humorous and quirky, yet his audience is somehow reassured by knowing that no matter how super you may be, everyone’s lives are essentially full of routine and mundanity. After all, even the queen has to take a dump, so why shouldn’t superman have to vacuum?
