About Kenneth Macpherson

Kenneth Macpherson was born in Scotland, March 27th 1902, the son of Scottish painter, John ‘Pop’ Macpherson and Clara Macpherson. Descended from 6 generations of artists, Macpherson was a novelist, photographer, critic and film-maker. It is only in recent years that Macpherson's contribution to cinematography has come to be recognised with the re-discovery of his work, which, though limited in output, was far ahead of its time, both in subject matter and cinematic technique. His 1930 film, Borderline, is now vey much part of the curriculum in the study of modern cinematography today. In his work with the Pool Group (1927-1933), which he co-founded with Bryher and HD, Macpherson also established the influential film journal, Close Up.
