Nothing is ever perfect and the 'Trouble in Paradise' photo series shows just how grave life can get. A catastrophe doesn't have to be defined by a big bang or blowout, but instead it's the more subtle commonplace problems that erode happiness away the most.

Photographed by Christoph Martin Schmid, 'Trouble in Paradise' shows everything from stalled cars to hiding husbands. Highly stylized, these snapshots capture an element of surrealism, yet it's common wisdom that instances of drownings and dying pets are recurrent.
