Alex Stoddard (and remember the name because I'm sure you'll be hearing it a lot more in the future) was born in 1993 in Jacksonville, Florida. He began taking self-portraits only two years ago at the age of sixteen in the woods behind his Georgian home.
Here's a look at some of his compelling work, many of which are self-portraits:
His work focuses on the human form and the process of infusing it with natural surroundings. His 'fine art' section of his site contains photographic images that are very surreal, unusual and more inventive than his 'portraits' section which contains shots that, while lovely, are more traditional and expected.

Alex is currently based in Orange, California.
