I’ve featured the work of young photographer Brian Oldham before on this blog, and recently he unveiled new equally awesome work. Beautiful Lies, a two-part photographic series, is less surreal than Oldham’s usual stuff but it makes up for it in concept.
In the photos, Oldham literally places a hopeful scene over the unpleasant image of factories polluting the skies and a barren landscape. The simple photos offer commentary on damage control, rose-colored glasses, putting a spin on environmental hazards, looking at the bright side of a shady reality.
These would look great in the corporate headquarters of BP and Exxon.
