Looking at Wyatt McCollum's photography, it's hard to believe he's only 21 years old. McCollum, who began photography after graduating high school, captures surreal portraiture, playing with space, light, depth, color (and gravity) for a truly hypnagogic effect.
The images of solitary figures convey complex emotions of loneliness and contemplation that elicit powerful, often empathetic responses from the viewer. McCollum often attaches a personal narrative to each photo, but these images don't need to an accompanying story to inspire or arouse whoever is looking at them; the photos speak for themselves.
This especially vivid series is immediately intriguing to the eye. It is only upon closer inspection that the layered complexity of McCollum's work becomes apparent. McCollum's imaginative series is a definite must-see.
