21-year old photographer Kyle Thompson may only be at the beginning of his career but his incredible surreal self-portraits demonstrate that his career is off to a promising start.

Playing with earth's natural elements, the photographer is seen enraptured amidst bodies of water, seen amidst a blazing fire and being buried in puddles of mud. His serene expression is contradicted with the chaotic surroundings around him. Many of his images also make use of long strands of fabric as he is seen suffocated and taken over by the material as well as making use of red and white balloons. Staying in line with a red and white color theme, there is constant representation of the elements throughout as well as this dichotomous relationships between natural and unnatural forces corroborating together.

These enrapturing and beautiful portraitures of photographer Kyle Thompson continues to demonstrate his knack for creating symbolic interpretations in his work.
