It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a photographer’s work that really takes me somewhere new. Kyle Thompson’s photos are dark, whimsical, with a touch of realist magic, that prevent them from being too macabre. His subjects include cigarette-smoking princes, preppy wanderers, drowning poets and beautiful boys of urban fantasy.
Thompson’s use of props, colors and lighting in his photographs is very refined, to the point that they work as visual motifs — proving that he has developed a consistent (and impressive) aesthetic.
