Hilarious Scenes of Manufactured Chaos

Los Angeles-based photographer Ryan Schude captures exclusive moments filled with energy, movement, life, and whimsy. Each frame tells a different story that is complex, layered, and intriguing.

Some of his photos are like the scene of a crime, with clues scattered within. For example, one can conclude that the girl, with a mouth full of blood and feathers, standing next to the bloody bird cage ate the bird that once dwelled in that cage. Others are simply mind-bogglingly fun.

It's definitely the quirky behaviors of his subjects that make Schude's body of work so intriguing. Doesn't his photos remind us of Martin Schoeller's celebrity portraits?
