Maggie McCutcheon’s photographic practice is rooted in the genre of social portraiture, frequently emphasizing the re-contextualization of agency and explores ideas of womanhood, family, and history. She seeks to interpret the gaze, confronting spaces, bodies, or ideas that have been rendered invisible. In working with slower analogue processes, her portrait practice employs long-established methods to reimagine contemporary notions within historical frameworks of imagery. Archival research and cultural theory inform her practice, prompting the continuous gathering of references and representations that embody her questions and subsequent creation. For this reason, research is an essential aspect to the work; not only to ground the images in a historical context, but also to become visually embedded in social discourses.
