Introducing Colin T. Burnett

Introducing Colin T. Burnett

With an eye for color, the vivid personalities of his subjects and an appetite for artistic experimentation, this photographer creates images that can never be unseen.

Only a few years into his career as a professional lensman, Colin Taylor Burnett—he goes by Colin G.—has already made a mark as a fine-art photographer and portraitist. Raised in Atlanta, Colin discovered he loved cameras as a boy. After learning the tricks of Photoshop, he took his creative projects to the next level, before pursuing formal studies in art at Morehouse College.

Colin takes a bold approach to his images, seeking brightly colored backgrounds for his portrait subjects, and zooming in to capture each detail of every face. He takes liberties in post-production, too, manipulating figures to surreal effect—removing facial features from behind a pair of sunglasses, for instance, or doubling up a pair of jumping legs, connected to no torso.

Perhaps most compelling are Colin’s college-graduate subjects in their square academic caps, some grinning with delight at their accomplishment, others looking steely in their focus on success. Each subject embodies the spirit of youth, of optimism and determination.

And so does their photographer. We can only imagine what he’ll train his lens on next.

Petrified

Colin Taylor Burnett

from Atlanta, GA

As I was walking through an apartment in Brooklyn, NY a dead bug jumped out at me, looked as if he'd been there for some summers at least two. The bee remained stuck on the apartment window overlooking Brooklyn, NY. I thought the idea of a bee being there that long in such a high…

Pink Porch Palisades

Colin Taylor Burnett

from Atlanta, GA

There is beauty in this pasty pink colored porch. You can almost see the presence of the porch's best friend still lingering there. "He'll be back soon" the porch says, "it's summer!". "Trayvon just went to get skittles and tea; he'll be back" the porch says. "It's the summer!, i'll just wait" the porch says.
