O’Donnell uses a large format 10 x 8 plate camera but also more recently has started working with a digital camera. Known today for making large scale installations and his dazzling colour constructed and narrative photographs, his images are often vibrant, daring, and humorous. In this talk, he will convey the changes in working methods from film to digital images, discussing the shortcomings and benefits of analogue and digital tools.

O’Donnell is an artist and lecturer in photography at Edinburgh Napier University. His work has been displayed in exhibitions worldwide, including the seminal show ‘The Vigorous Imagination’ at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. He is the recipient of a Leverhulme Trust Research grant for photography and his work has been collected by museums worldwide and acquired for the nation, including the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow.
