Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Roddy MacInnes on Life, A Photography Project
“The value of photographs was apparent to me at a young age. The recollection of my family arranging and re-arranging themselves in front of the camera to memorialize happy events had a profound effect on the way I perceive the world. Since 1965, with varying levels of consciousness, I have been using photography to construct a reality of who and where I think I am.”
Roddy MacInnes has been teaching photography at the University of Denver since 2001. He considers himself to be an autobiographical photographer, and in this capacity, he has been documenting his life through photography for five decades.
He received a Master of Fine Arts in photography from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a Bachelor of Arts in photography from Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland. His latest photography project was inspired by two albums of photographs he discovered in an antique mall in Denver, Colorado. A North Dakota woman made the photographs in 1917. Through this project, Roddy is exploring issues surrounding the relationships between photography and the construction of identity.
