Over the past dozen years, Scott McFarland has become one of the most prominent artists working with photography. His subtle manipulations of the photograph and use of tableau scale offer the viewer a new perspective on the photograph as a single moment in time.
McFarland has expanded the subjects of his works in recent years from the large-scale tableaux gardens in Vancouver, for which he is perhaps best known, to winter scenes, cottage country outside the city and the urban street.
This publication features his more recent work, much of which is previously unseen.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Scott McFarland: Snow, Shacks, Streets, Shrubs at Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada, 14 May – 10 August 2014.
