The Royal Bank of Canada, Principal Partner of Photo London presents Scott McFarland’s Sugar Shack, Caledon, Ontario, at the fair this year. Part of RBC’s collection, Sugar Shack, Caledon, Ontario, travels from RBC’s New York office to London, exhibited in the Photo London lounge hub at Somerset House.
Sugar Shack, Caledon, Ontario (2009), a cinematic nocturnal scene, summarizes McFarland’s references to darkroom motifs. A worker in the shack can be seen through an open door, testing the sugar-and-water mixture in the beaker he holds. The shack is ablaze with light that also spills outside.
