Bio:

My name is Kylie Tarburton and while I'm originally from New England, I've lived in York for the last 18 years. After attending York Country Day School, I ventured to Arcadia University to receive a degree in Media and Communications. It was through my childhood where I learned to love photography and through my education where I learned how to turn this passion into a career.

 

Artist Statement:

Every time I use my camera; my goal is to push my own creative mind. How can I better myself? How can I make one moment, one second, that much more interesting? A photograph is a snapshot that speaks volumes. It evokes emotions but especially memories. I spend hours looking through my images understanding what they mean to me first before I look to other people for their opinions.

I make a lot of work for my own joy. But there are many times that my joy comes from others enjoying my photographs. For me, it is important that I stay true to myself and the standards I have built up for my images. So, while I don't focus on one particular style of photography, I'm okay with that. Some images are simple, understated landscapes, others are complex staged photos that tell a story. Overall, my work is about the joy that the process of photography brings me.
