Scott Douglas is a promising young photographer based out of the Fraser Valley in British Columbia. His interest in the bodily experience of fear lays the foundation for his work.
Fear, he says, "is the natural response to threats in our environment. It is an instinct that has kept us safe from dangers in our primal past. From infancy to death, we are genetically programmed to feel fear. Taking visual information from our environment, our brain assesses and responds accordingly to ensure our own personal survival."
He believes fear of the unknown leads to the projection of danger onto alien objects.
Scott Douglas' debut exhibition opens March 3rd, 2011.
