Art: Benjamin Backhouse

London based artist Benjamin C. M. Backhouse's existentialist photographs explore the isolation of the psyche.

Wandering the city at night, Backhouse captures eerie scenes of empty streets and abandoned spots - non-places that are overlooked and often transient by nature. He aims to capture a sense of isolation by allowing the viewer to explore the photographs, and perhaps to empathise with his own isolation when making exposures.
