• Vici MacDonald works as a writer, editor and art director for clients including Oxford University Press and The Art Newspaper. She was a founding editor of contemporary art magazine Art World, and author of Rosalie Gascoigne (Regaro, 1997), a monograph on the late Australian sculptor (1917–99), renowned for poetic assemblages of found text. In collaboration with the poet Tamar Yoseloff she has founded Hercules Editions, a small independent press combining poetry and prose in beautiful small books. Their first project was Formerly, which paired Tamar’s sonnets with Vici’s photos in a tour of disappearing London. The book was exhibited at London’s Southbank Centre, and shortlisted for the 2012 Ted Hughes Award. More such photos feature on Vici’s daily photo-blog Shopfront Elegy, a celebration of sad old commercial facades.
