Kyle Thompson was born in Chicago on January 11th, 1992. He began taking photographs at the age of nineteen after finding interest in nearby abandoned houses. His work is mostly composed of self portraits, often taking place in empty forests and abandoned homes. His work encapsulates the ephemeral narrative, a nonexistent story line that only lives for a split moment. These images show the collapse of narrative, as there is no defined story line with a beginning and end; instead, these images create a loop. This fleeting moment lives on in a constant unchanging state. By diverting the view of the face, the images become more ambiguous, the viewer is no longer able to tie a defined story line to the image.
I consider my photographic creation as a poetic experience in which I drown myself, dissolve myself and, as a result, it gives me the feeling that I’m reborn with each portrait into a new being. My attitude towards the self is more of an exploratory journey between an awareness of self and an unawareness of some aspects of self.Angelika Ejtel
Joshua Malik, a 19 year old photographer located in California, shoot stunning original portraits and self portraits with a simple and dreaming look. “You will always be able to see what someone is truly feeling by simply peering into their eyes.“
I am a photographer and architect based in Oxford / London, England. I’ve always loved telling stories and knew from a young age that I would work within the creative industry. A few years ago armed with a small point and shoot camera and Photoshop I began a 365 self portraiture project. It was a turning point in my life. Finally I’d discovered a medium that just made sense to me. In the past few years I’ve pursued photography with a passion and am constantly striving to improve my skill set. Bella Kotak
“My earliest memories were always of the stories read to me by my mother as a child … how it felt to be curled into her side, listening to the rush of her breath as she paused for effect, before launching into yet another characters voice… Tragically my mother was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and my world fell apart. Photography became my only escape when I could no longer talk about how I felt. I lost myself in street portraiture, focusing on those who reflected my own sadness and loss. I later turned the camera inwards, and began photographing myself throughout the hardest year of my life. It became an utter fantasy that blocked out the real world, and a place where I could return to my memories of her, far away from those hospitals walls.” Kirsty Mitchell.
