Came across Kyle’s work on his relatively new Instagram account as he had posted a few photos from an upcoming zine project documenting the last days of marijuana grow op in Oregon prior to legalization…the atmosphere of which really caught my eye. I like the intimacy of his photos and the resulting tighter compositions coupled with the contrasty color he shoots with. The multi-layered self portrait response to question number one, is a beautiful play on repetitions with the plants, squares, and triangles of the house lines that perfectly meet his shoulder completing a perfect compositional puzzle.
