About me

Angus is an international award-winning photographer who started his career in the advertising/commercial sector of photography, working for numerous clients, ad/design agencies and editorial publications.
 
He has exhibited internationally and has won many high profile awards including:
Bar Tur Photobook Award, London, UK
National Portrait Gallery's Photography Award, London, UK
Arles Photography Festival, Arles, France
Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK
International Photography Awards, New York, USA
Center, Santa Fe Awards, New Mexico, USA
 
Since 2009, Angus's practice has been research led, with his current primary area of interest based on photography's relationship to Death - both historically and culturally - and how death is now portrayed contemporarily through the photographic medium. His most recently published project is on ‘Santa Muerte’ (Saint Death), a documentary portrayal of a Mexican saint considered by her devotees to be the true representation of Death. ‘Santa Muerte’ won the inaugural Bar Tur Photobook Award via the Photographers’ Gallery, London.​
