Kyle Worthy of Charlotte, North Carolina is a storyteller. He photographs our landscapes, primarily in the Southeast, manipulating the images in such a way to ensure an emotional connection to the beauty and perfection of mother nature.
To achieve his goal for each photograph, Kyle captures the moment with the assistance of camera manipulation during exposure. He also may tweak the image in the digital darkroom and/or add an application of a cold wax medium to the final shot. This gives his art that soft, velvet look. He seeks to strip a sense of place from each photograph, replacing it with the spirit or essence of the land, sea or sky.
Kyle has shared, "Landscapes are often powerful conduits of memory, regardless of their geographical location. No matter where you are you can be delivered home by a bend in the road, a horizon crosshatched by power lines, or even a particular quality of light." These clouds have me daydreaming, which achieves Kyle's goal of having us lost somewhere between a reality and dream state. See Kyle's current collections, here.
