These photographs by Chicago-based photographer Kyle Thompson are hands down some of the most stunning self-portraits we've ever seen.
"I started taking self portraits a little over a year ago. I was interested in photography but am terrible at talking with people," he writes in a recent imgur post. "So I ended up using myself in nearly all of my photos. I started to spend several hours a day going alone through empty forests taking self portraits with my camera's timer."
By combining powerful scene composition with masterful image manipulation, Thompson has provided us with a remarkably convincing glimpse into a world where the uncanny and the everyday become intimately and weirdly entwined. This is surrealist photography at its finest.
