Kyle Meyer (Kylemeyer.com), born in Ohio in 1980, was recently profiled in a NOV 2018 NY Times article: ‘8 Artists to See at the Paris Photo Fair Who Show Where Photography is Going’.
In his words, ‘My work is a perpetual analytical inquiry about my own identity as a gay man and the LGBTQ communities with whom I identify. It is deeply rooted in my experience growing up in a conservative farming community in rural Ohio and subsequently through spending a significant period as an adult in Swaziland where it is illegal to be homosexual. By weaving together photographic and sculptural elements, my artwork metaphorically speaks to the human condition of seclusion, oppression, memory, and loss. It also laboriously questions the potency of digital photography by embracing the haptic qualities of craft. Kyle Meyer is represented by Yossi Milo Gallery, NYC. (YossiMilo.com)
