For our latest group show, we gave you free rein to delve into all things weird, absurd, and downright crazy. Curated by Gabriel H. Sanchez, Photo Essay Editor at BuzzFeed, the winning collection reveals just how varied and subjective our theme of “off the wall” can be. From dolls having breakfast in bed to a Tetris piece going for a casual stroll down the block, these images can each be taken either as downright hilarious or as a strangely sobering depiction of the human condition. In some cases, we’re not sure whether to laugh or cry, and that perhaps is the definition of “off the wall” photographs: images so delightfully bizarre that they elicit often intense and sometimes contradictory responses.
