Trailblazers: Fire, the sea and butterflies feature in several photographs by Oleg Oprisco
The props themselves would often take days to create – with the photos featured containing fake butterflies of varying sizes, oversized matchsticks, a stack of fake books, up to 21 light wooden bird feeders and pile of oversized vintage-style luggage.

Oleg Oprisco is based in Ukraine.
