M R McDonald

M R McDonald is a photographer, living in Central Washington, who shoots almost exclusively publicly available surfaces from downtown Seattle, Pike Place, and Capitol Hill.

His subjects are decaying areas, predominantly of posters, subject to the onslaught of weather and time, found on telephone poles, cement walls, construction sites, garbage bins, and electric boxes, etc.

He is also a painter — a radically non-representational painter: no narrative; no messages or ‘content;’ and, no expression. Just forms — line, mass, color, and their dynamic interplay.
