Rod McNicol: memento mori

12 June 2014 to 31 August 2014

Rod McNicol’s photographic practice has always concentrated on portraiture as a genre that highlights mortality. For over three decades McNicol has been inviting people from his inner-city community to put their lives on pause for a few moments and stare into the lens of his camera. The portraits that McNicol has captured in the stillness of his studio are both tender and brazen; they are faces that function as witnesses to the inescapable passing of time.

This exhibition surveys McNicol’s extended portrait project, from his early black-and-white prints through to his most recent colour portraits.
