Scott McFarland

Scott McFarland is the most successful conceptual photographer from the third generation of artists associated with “The Vancouver School.” During his BFA at UBC, McFarland studied alongside acclaimed artists including Roy Arden and Liz Magor, and worked as a studio assistant to Jeff Wall.

McFarland’s large-format photographs combine multiple analog exposures in a single frame. His fabricated tableaus depict multiple moments of truth over a duration of time. Their content is based on reality, however, they are not made in an instant.

McFarland has exhibited internationally and his work is represented in numerous major collections including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
