ongoing, old and new / by Garrett MacLean

After years of living with my old website, I'm really happy to have this new site, with a new design and updated work. I plan to use the blog to show work that I'm happy with, but not "deserving" of a permanent place on the main site, from single images to essays.

Such as this portrait of Marcus.

This is Marcus. While being homeless, he was in a dumpster which was then upended/loaded into a garbage truck (unbeknownst to the driver). As the truck compacted the trash, Marcus lost the lower part of his right leg. His story was told in an article in The Guardian, in an article cataloging numerous similar incidents. I shot his portrait to accompany the article.  Marcus currently lives in a recovery home just north of Detroit.
