Vancouver, Canada provides the incredible jaw-dropping scenery for young photographer Elizabeth Gadd’s photos, but it is the artist herself who infuses them with such a sense of wonder, placing lone human subjects in each scene that feel like a stand-in for the viewer.
Conceptual photographer Oleg Oprisco scours flea markets for interesting props for each of his surreal images, shooting only in medium-format film. “We live in exciting times,” the Ukrainian artist tells 500px of his inspiration. “Everything that happens in our lives is a unique source of inspiration.

We can live anywhere and create anything and show it to the world. Everything is in our hands.”
