Artist Statement

Utah native Kent Budge, earned a degree in photography and graphic design from Weber State University. A resident of Park City for 23 years and victim of wanderlust, he has traveled widely with camera in tow. Budge's career as a Creative director has strongly influenced how he sees life through the lens. He gained valuable working experience with advertising agencies, fellow artists and photographers to create corporate communications. His graphic design background is apparent in his photographic compositional awareness that combines subject, light, texture and color into a minimal but essential combination of elements that transforms and elevates everyday subject matter. It's a process of distillation of subject and space that distinguishes his photographic style.

"A camera is just another way of telling a story and like all good stories, point of view and composition are key". Ever present in observing ones surroundings, sometimes unexpected and serendipitous outcomes can occur. It is the pursuit of the capture without guarantee that makes photography rewarding. You know the Easter eggs are out there but you never know when you will find the next one.
