Awe-inspiring Kyle Thompson Self Portrait

 

Kyle Thompson from Chicago began taking photographs at the age of nineteen after finding interest in nearby abandoned houses where he would spend hours, even days, walking alone through forests and exploring. He’s been to over 50 of them. After taking hundreds of photos, he posted some of his best to Reddit. From there, his life changed forever…

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.
