Dean Butters uses the trope of Batman in constructed scenarios to portray the stark reality of an unfulfilled life contrasted against the hopes and aspirations of childhood idealism. Butters' images examine the ideas of protracted adolescence and social disconnection, amalgamating realistic situations with the fictional stories we consume to ultimately talk about a failure of identity through the process of growing up and accepting the real world.
