2016 Finalists

Chris BUDGEON

Artist statement: Repeated trips to a small Canadian town in the dead of winter lead to an unearthing of deep memories that had lain dormant for nearly four decades. Severe jetlag turned into sleepless nights, prompting these early morning wanderings, revisiting locations that years earlier were the scenes of a typically troubled youth. To me these images feel like virtual unconscious projections unwittingly captured by my all observant lens, the closest thing I can imagine to an out of body experience.

‘That is how I explained myself to the strange impression I had of being odd man out, a kind of intruder.’ Albert Camus, The Outsider
