A three quarter length portrait of a male figure dressed in a white shirt, black tie, and back pants. He has white hair, and is looking directly at the viewer. He wears a black holster across his shoulders, which, when we look closely, holds a notebook and pen.

Untitled T#1, 2019

Photograph, 80 x 64 cm

‘A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.’ (Edward Steichen)

Untitled T#1 is one of a series of photographic portraits I have done of Tony Strickland. This is the first part of the series and was carried out in May 2019.’


Fionn McCann’s work is varied but concentrates on the relationship between the built environment and the surrounding landscape. He also has a special interest in portraiture, in particular the demands of dealing with a person in a compressed space of time. That is one of its major challenges and why he generally likes to work in series. It allows the subject to be explored in more depth and from a greater variety of perspectives.
