The great thing about conceptual photography is that it has the ability to completely bend the laws of reality. The amazing images from 'Fredrik Broden' not only fulfill that quality, but they push the limits of the genre by lacing the entire thing with metaphors that create a thought-provoking effect.

Whether it's a couple having a wonderful picnic on some incredibly dangerous train tracks, or a melting basketball laying on the court, these pictures are definitely bizarre in a way that gets you thinking. With a political undertone to many of the photographs, there's a strong message to be mined from the captures. Fredrik Broden's conceptual photography reminds us that being human is full of many different mistake-prone situations. The photographs are wonderful because of how diverse they are, stretching from surreal to humor, everyone will find something to enjoy in these pictures.
