Angus Scott is a lens-based artist and visual editor living and working on Wurundjeri country in Melbourne, Australia.
Working with both still and moving image, Angus’ creative practice is anchored in land and culture; the overlapping influences of where we live and who we are. Informed by familial narratives, national myths and connection to landscape, his work oscillates between poetic and observational forms of documentary storytelling.
In 2021, Angus was the recipient of the inaugural OD Prize for his body of work Teetering like a September myth. The project was then exhibited in London as part of the winter program by Open Doors Gallery. In the same year, Angus also exhibited his video installation, Do Brumbies Dream in Red? in Melbourne. Formed in collaboration with Tom Goldner, the two channel large-format projection work was the culmination of two years spent documenting the climate crisis in Australia, from the politically charged coal mining regions of Central QLD to the fire ravaged landscapes of the NSW Snowy Mountains and Victorian High Country. Angus’ debut monograph, Teetering like a September myth was released in 2022.
As an editor for Photo Collective, Angus spends his days immersed in Australian photography with a strong focus on visual narrative. Angus assists in the management and production of written content, produces short films and puts together publications such as Photo Collective Magazine. He also sit on the judging committee for the series-based annual award Stories and the annual Australian Photography Awards.
