Kelly Burgess is a project-based conceptual fine art photographer living and working in rural Vermont. Emotional narrative is the thematic thread running through her work and she uses natural light, color, and mood to guide her audience through her photographs. Kelly received her MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2018 and her BFA from the Lesley University College of Art and Design in 2009.

Kelly brings the same rich sense of emotion to her portrait, lifestyle, and travel photography. She has a love of quietly capturing the world around her and seeing as much as she can.

Her book "Sing Me Back Home" was recently featured at the Arctic Arts Festival in Norway, and she has exhibited and published her work internationally; including at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, the Vermont Center for Photography, the MassArt Museum in Boston, and the New York Times.

In addition to her photography work, Kelly is the Executive Director/Publisher for the Too Tired Project, a 501c3 non-profit photography initiative committed to helping those struggling with depression by offering a place for collective creative expression, and she is the Gallery Coordinator for the Castleton University Art Galleries. 

She is available for photography or curatorial work worldwide.
