Am I Dreaming or Am I Awake?

Brisbane, Australia-based photographer Thomas C. Calder makes us think twice about what's real and what's make-believe. His photos will remind you of that strange dream you had the other night, when you suddenly found yourself sleeping in a beautiful forest and you weren't sure if you'd ever wake up. They invite you to pick up right where you left off, imagining living in a slightly surreal place, where rules were meant to be broken and where you were only limited by your own imagination. With a background in acting and film-making, it's no wonder that Calder's photos are filled with stories. Influenced by Gregory Crewdson, Eugenio Recuenco, and Tim Walker, Calder takes inspiration from those who are able to tell an intriguing tale.
