Photographer Scott McFarland creates exacting images that depict nature crafted to human will and desire. A major body of work has focused on Vancouver gardens. On one level, the photographs indicate a state of harmony and peacefulness, while on the other, the overall effect appears artificial.
McFarland’s works emphasize both the precarious balance between human and natural worlds and how photography’s link to reality is both true and fabricated.
The exhibition is organized by the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in conjunction with the BC Scene programming presented by the National Arts Centre from 21 April to 3 May 2009.
