Buchla Artist Statment

“Man’s Best Friend” 

My name is Dakota Buchla, I’m a film photographer local to Phoenix. 

I took this photo in December of last year in San Francisco. I love to see isolation in a photo. To be in such a large city and be the only person in frame is remarkable. I am so grateful a place like Wilson exists where people can be welcomed in with open arms. I’m also grateful for the film community here and how much it’s grown. 

Thank you for reading. 

Thank you for being here and supporting artists. 

Thank you for giving a shit.
