Los Angeles-based photographer Hugh Kretschmer has quite the imagination. His funny, elaborate scenes seem like they're straight out of the sci-fi comedy show, 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Kretschmer's creativity and attention to detail really make these shots stand out. "The idea is the most important ingredient," he says. "I’ve always appreciated concept because it adds another layer to the photograph and invites participation from the viewer. When I see something that is done well, where the artist really nails it, I find myself just staring. I can’t think of anything else that would be more of a compliment than that."

  • This guy has a terrific imagination and really makes it come alive. I especially like the one with the man and woman staring at the mannequins. They are oblivious of each other but their dogs aren't. Nice post!
  • Woah, the these are crazy! Love the kite man,
