Close Up: Graham MacIndoe
6pm Tuesday 14th July
If you missed the facebook livestream you can watch it below:
For the fourth instalment of our Close Up artist talks we will be joined by Graham MacIndoe, who will discuss his early work from Edinburgh right through to BLack Lives Matter protest in NYC and how photography and protest have changed - or not changed since then!
Born in Scotland, Graham MacIndoe studied painting at Edinburgh College of Art and received a master's degree in photography from the Royal College of Art in London. He is an associate professor of photography at Parsons The New School in New York City, where he has been teaching since 2011, and has worked as a photographer for more than 20 years. His documentary and portrait photography focuses on a range of social justice issues, as well as art, music, and running—a lifelong passion he continues today.
Graham’s photographs have been exhibited widely, including a 2018 solo exhibition at The Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati of photos he’s taken of the Grammy award-winning band The National. In 2017, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery acquired and exhibited a series of photographs he took during a period of addiction, accompanied by text and multimedia describing his trajectory to recovery. The Guardian called that show, Coming Clean, one of five “best UK exhibitions” to see when it opened.
