SOME OF THE SPECIALIST DEALERS
WHO WILL BE EXHIBITING AT THE NEXT FAIR on 1st November 2020
Bristol based photographer Luis Bustamente first came to England from Chile in 1974, and since then has documented the experience of being a refugee in the UK.
'I’d always fancied myself a photographer and had been greatly impressed with Julio Cortázar’s idea of things possibly not being as they seem and photographs making us face that alarming possibility. I felt obliged to have a camera with me in the same way Cortázar thought that if you carry a camera you have to look. I have photographed in many locations in England and Wales.
Taking photographs of the place came without much of a design. I wasn’t looking back, we could hardly see ahead – we just hovered in the actual moment. The camera had two purposes: it was a connection with our new life and a shield that enabled me to look at it. The camera gives an entitlement to stare and an excuse to be in the way. It provides an outsider with a chance to belong.'
