Consistently the best photographer on Flickr. Always something interesting and provoking. Pure vision plain and simple.

Wylie's camera is the paring knife that will slowly tear away at exterior and rip the ugly you to the surface for all to see. His has one of the most uniquely provocative and creative streams on flickr. I eagerly await each new post.

Wylie's camera is the paring knife that will slowly tear away at exterior and rip the ugly you to the surface for all to see. His has one of the most uniquely provocative and creative streams on flickr. I eagerly await each new post. Some people can fake tallen and others are born with a gift, Wylie is certainly the later. From his travel work in Liberia to his model shoots with girls in deer skulls, it all tears through my mind like a 7.62FMJ. I absolutely admire is unapologetic, take-no-prisoners approach to photography. His skill is unwavering. I sit here with pupils dilated anticipating fight or flight. This stream is like a drug and the world needs more.

I've been watching Wylie's work for somewhere around 2 years now, and I'm still consistently amazed every time I look at his photostream.

I've been watching Wylie's work for somewhere around 2 years now, and I'm still consistently amazed every time I look at his photostream. His remarkable eye for composition combines with a focused vision to produce images thick with emotion and a style distinctly his own. He has an uncanny talent for zeroing in on what's important in a photo and throwing out the rest. Wylie's photos, even his candids, are often something reminiscent of impressionist paintings, but on a very different sort of canvas.

Creative inspiration, easily found.

you cease to amaze me when it comes to your photography and post processing. have you thought about taking or sending your work to NY or LA? dude...bank and millions of ideas coming right at you. Celebrities (the life i would kil for.) i can't wait to work with you again.

When you're creative, it's always important to aspire to a level of greatness. The nice thing about aspiring to Wylie's level is that just when you think you've caught up to him, he's jumped leaps and bounds ahead.

It's hard to find another stream as interesting and unique as Wylie's. He's been an inspiration ever since I first saw his portraits. I must admit, a generous portion of my photo processing is nothing more than an attempt at aping Wylie Maercklein.

talent like this cannot be bought in an expensive camera shop whatever budget you have to spend.

I'm not shy to say that Wylie is my favorite photographer in town and will be sorely missed - BUT(!!) he's coming back in November and will get in touch with me when he does :))))

Shooting with Wylie is always a pleasure. I can be confident he'll produce interesting and unique shots everytime. He sees in crops what most of us leave behind and creates art that I can't help but fav and love. I can't wait to see what you'll come up with on the road Wylie!

One of the best on Flickr. Really. Look no further. And if you do, you will return to Wylie's photostream, guaranteed. Amazing, amazing environmental captures and extremely creative ideas when creating a scene.

One of rare flickr gems. Looking at these photos made me intimidated and inspired at the same time.

From stunningly original commercial shoots, to dark and introspective personal photographic journey's, there's not much Wylie can't point a camera at and come away with powerful unique images.

Wylie has a unique "talent" for exposing the grotesque and unfortunate minutiae that otherwise lay occluded, some might say where they belong, beneath the veneer of everyday life. Every skewed glance is filtered through binary-colored glasses: black and white, light and shadow, jubilation and sorrow, desolation and... loneliness? He seeks to perpetuate a terrible iconography via glass and manipulation; fortunately for us, however, he often fails in this regard and occasionally stumbles upon the transcendent and the real. Look upon these images and mock with us the confines of mortality and physical law. Gaze upon this work and weep.
