Surreal Self-Portraits by Kyle Thompson

 

20-year old Kyle Thompson is an up and coming photographer from Chicago, Illinois. His recent series of conceptual self-portraits have been spreading like wildfire, thanks in part to an album he posted on Reddit that was on the top spot of the front page four days ago.

Kyle is also active on Flickr, where he is a half way through a 365 day photo project where he posts a new conceptual photograph daily. It’s really interesting and definitely worth checking out. Even in the short lifetime of the project, you can see Kyle’s skill developing as he takes his concepts to new levels of creativity and execution.
