Brian Kyle is a fine-art photographer and multidisciplinary artist that utilizes his background in graphic design, illustration, and printmaking in the creation of his photographic images. Kyle employs a cinematic approach to fictional storytelling through the construction of engaging narrative-rich portraits, landscapes, and still-life images. Taking advantage of the poetics and economy of visual storytelling Kyle’s resulting images often depict scenes of quiet melancholy that invite inspection. Viewers are encouraged to engage in the storytelling process by the artist’s subtle incorporation of elements of significant detail throughout his carefully-constructed scenes.
