Andrew Lyman's silhouette photography is absolutely stunning, as it creates a surreal world where the dead serenely inhabit the world of the living. These gorgeous captures are part of a wonderful concept that is all about showing the transience of humanity.

The series is called 'Fleeted Happenings' and is a perfect reminder to always remember what's important, because the possibility of it fading away is always present. The silhouette photography from Lyman definitely pushes the limits of photography as it shows just how possible it is to literally transcend the image of death. The way the images cast the dying souls as ethereal and almost dream-like creations shines a different light on the morbid association it often receives.
