He may only be 18 years old but Bryan Durushia, aka DreamingOfAutumn, is turning heads with his stunning photography.
Based in Minnesota, the budding photographer already has a style of his own. On this particular set of pictures, he's captured mysterious creatures he refers to as Pumpkin People. Each character's head has been replaced by a gourd while he walks through the forest - a recurrent theme in his other photo essays.
Keep your eye out for this talented photographer as you're sure to hear his name pop up with bigger projects. For a look at his other stunning photography, check out his Flickrgallery.
