Photographer Madison Carroll is only 21 years old, but her photographs -- a mixture of diaristic-portrait style photos and carefully staged and arranged still-life images -- showcase the full depth and maturity of her photographing style. Most of the photos were captured in the apartments of people close to her across her home state of Philadelphia.

The subjects captured in Madison Carroll's photos exude a soft, dreamlike appearance regardless of whether they are consciously posing for a photo or being caught unawares.

As far as the still-life photographs are concerned, Carroll wandered the city streets and gathered interesting textures and discarded objects. Carroll then combined these random objects in unexpected ways, resulting in photographs that are fascinating yet somewhat disturbing.
