20-year-old photographer uses his wild imagination to explore another world

Brian Oldham is just 20-years-old and a photographer from California who takes the most breathtaking shots, ones that show a strange and vivid imagination. Many of the photographs in this series seem to capture beautiful moments frozen in time, whether it's a trio of butterflies gently escaping a jar or a couple caught on fire and walking towards the camera, there's a fascinating mix of things going on in each frame. Props are often used to create these dream-like and surreal pictures - the odd ladder here and there, or a solitary door placed in the middle of nowhere. You can see the meticulous planning that obviously goes on behind the scenes, ensuring that you - the viewer - are left scratching your head and wondering what their meaning is all about.
