New Amazingly Surreal Portraits by 19-Year-Old Alex Stoddard

One of our favorite young photographers, Alex Stoddard, continues to expand his collection of creative images, offering an endless source of inspiration for his peers. The 19-year-old photographer manages to produce engaging narratives with each image he shares through his Flickr account, inviting viewers to get lost in their surreal nature. His latest additions are no exception as they provide visions of unconventional beauty in the bodies of frail individuals engulfed in smoke, limp figures writhing on a beach, and the haunting presence of a man soaked in blood.

Never short on ideas, Stoddard's portfolio is constantly growing with brand new visuals. With age, the photographer's work appears to go through its own changes, evolving into images with greater depth to them. Some might even say that Stoddard is leading his generation of creative photographers with his innovative vision. There are already many new, young talents that find themselves drawn to his work, emulating his compositions and ideas in an effort to learn and grow their own skill set. We can't wait to see what else Stoddard has in store for the future.
