Toronto-based photographer Scott McFarland layers individual exposures using computer technology to create photographs of exquisite and crystalline detail. These highly constructed images are often shot over a long period of time, displacing the notion of a photograph as a snapshot of one decisive moment.
McFarland spent his early career in Vancouver, where he focused on rustic coastal cabins, darkrooms and gardens. Recently, he has expanded his photographic gaze to include urban scenes and streetscapes. Approximately 40 of his photographs from the last five years will be on display at the AGO later this spring — including large-scale images from the New Orleans and Street View Labs series and his moving Repatriation series, which chronicles the return of fallen soldiers to Canada from Afghanistan.
Presented in association with the exhibition Scott McFarland, May 14 – August 10, 2014.
