Though we live in a society that is obsessed with pop culture and worry about who will be playing the new Batman, real-life superheroes surround us every day and can easily go unnoticed. Photographer Brandon Cawood makes sure that they don't in his inspiring series called ‘Not All Wear Capes.’

The series, which pays homage to the real superheroes of our society, features photos styled to look like scenes from action movies. Some of the dramatic photos include a firefighter pulling a person from a fire, paramedics attending to a little girl on a stretcher and a scuba-diver submerging into shipwreck waters.

Cawood wants people to join in a "celebration of our communities' guardians" and memorialize "the healers that put us back together when our bodies are broken."
