Kyle Forrest Burns – Views of the Lost

In this age of mass production and strip malls, the stark realism of Kyle Burns’ photography is a breath of fresh air. A heady current of melancholy and wistfulness runs through each image, with the embrace of decay and the promise of the passing of time. Originally from Magalia, California, Burns spent time in Fort Bragg following high school, which clearly helped to develop his strong aesthetic. Shooting primarily on film is something he believes has helped instill a greater sense of value in every frame captured. “If you’re paying to develop every frame, you really have to think whether you want to take each picture.” Burns’ work is slated to be featured in Visionarios Magazine, and can be seen at For questions or commissions, Burns can be reached at
