Angus MacKinnon (1991, London) is a South African Fine Art, Street and Portrait photographer based in Johannesburg. In 2013 he graduated from UCT’s Michaelis School of Fine Art with a BAFA. The last two years have by and large been spent travelling and producing work in West Africa and Europe. He has exhibited widely within South Africa, as well as abroad in places such as Bamako, Mali and Amsterdam, Holland. In 2014 he participated in the Nigerian based Invisible Borders photography residency and in 2015 he was selected as one of nine “Young Talented Artists” for the Fresh Produce Exhibition and mentorship programme at the Turbine Art Fair. He is currently participating in The Market Photo Workshop’s Photography Incubator Programme 2016. His work focuses on the complexities of Africa - the weight of it's past, the diverse realities of today and the schizophrenic nature of it's future. Key themes that are central to his practice include mobility, the environment, labour and the human condition.
He has worked in over nineteen different countries, has exhibited both locally and internationally and his work is included in a number of private and corporate collections.
