I am a Marvel


Inspired by the upcoming @marvelstudios film Captain Marvel @captainmarvelofficial a tale of a hero’s journey of a female fighter pilot Carol Danvers. 3 creatives have come together to photograph a collection of 11 inspirational women who embody her spirit, strength and humanity. These women represent diversity in ethnicity, background, body forms and age. In their ever-evolving and inspirational lives these women have soared and are still soaring “Higher, Further, Faster”. They are rising to the challenges in front of them and discovering what makes them a hero in their own story. They are Marvels.
