A Dramatic Flight

Young photographer Kyle Thompson likes venturing out to isolated spots in the forest to take pictures. His conceptual self-portraits were shot with a camera, but they are also digitally edited to create effects such as duplicated hands and cloth flinging in mid-air. His work shows some signs of inspiration from surrealist Rene Magritte—an example is the sheet covering his head like in “The Lovers,” and another is a clock placed in front of his face, a remake of “The Son of Man.”
