ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jock McDonald, born in Vancouver, Canada in 1961, opened his photography and film studio in San Francisco in 1986. He is a self-taught photographer whose portrait work --both in black-and-white and color-- has achieved national and international critical acclaim for its distinctive use of wit, humor, pathos, and qualities of mystery. McDonald’s art has been widely published and exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, including exhibitions in the U.S., Mexico, Russia, Ukraine, and Cuba co-sponsored by the Mexican, Canadian, U.S., Cuban, and former Eastern European Soviet governments. His latest exhibitions include the series "One World Portrait" at the 2009 Cuban Havana Biennial, and his solo show in Vancouver, Canada titled "Native Sons" in 2016. He has been awarded a show of his "Water" series at the San Francisco International Airport for 2019. His website is: Jockmacdonald.com.
