Sebastian Magnani

Sebastian Magnani skilfully captures the aura of the mysterious superhero Batman, and then places it within the context of our normal, everyday reality. Thus, colliding two worlds, surprising and inspiring us. The figure Batman becomes a person with whom we can identify with. Magnani doesn’t portray the superhero as Bruce Wayne, who could walk into a bar at any time – he rather leaves him in his disguise. With this approach, Magnani creates a charming, unique Batman who behaves much differently than how you might expect.

Sebastian Magnani developed an interest in photography while completing an apprenticeship for media design. In 2011, after 5 years of creative work at an advertising agency, he decided to turn his passion into his profession. Since then he has worked as a photographer based in Zurich and has implemented various artistic projects. His series Daily Bat was inspired by a conversation that questioned: Who actually is the coolest superhero?
