Magee’s twenty-five year retrospective “Outside” was published to international acclaim in 2017. He is presenting the sequel “Outside II” at START 2021.
Having travelled extensively, in recent years Magee has focused on the landscape of Ireland, particularly the Atlantic coastline, which has served as a great source of inspiration for him.
“Earth, Water, Air ... are the recurring elements that I work with. It is my relationship with and my interpretation of these elements that shape the basis of my photographs, in whatever form they take, once I am absorbed in the landscape. The location itself is totally secondary to the feeling. The feeling is everything …”
Magee has exhibited globally. His work can be found in many private and public collections.
