In 2010 Karianne Bueno met Doug on his campsite deep in the forests of Canada’s Vancouver Island. Two years later she returned with her camera to document his life away from society. Doug built his cabin on the foundations of a pioneer’s house and worked as a carpenter at a military radar station. To better understand Doug, Bueno immersed herself in the history so dear to him. Over time, her once tangible photography project about living away from society turned into a labyrinth of stories across multiple layers of time and reality. Through photos, diary fragments, and found footage, she takes us deeper into the forest, questioning if we actually have control over our lives.
