This is my first post on this domain name IanPhillipsMcLaren.com after running with ipmclaren.com for the last couple of years for my fine art photography work. Things were starting to get a bit confusing using variations of my name, so thought I’d stick with my full name Ian Phillips McLaren. After 30 years of Fashion and portrait photography for various large companies / magazines / clients, I decided to move away from commercial photography to get back to making images for me. In order to immerse myself fully in fine art work, I’m starting my Fine Art masters degree at Cambridge Ruskin university / Cambridge School Of Art on 18th September 2019, possibly as the oldest student in town. I will post updates on my work and degree work as I go, on this blog.
Here are a couple of recent shots from my Drive By series.
Some new gum prints shot down my lane, originally shot as digital, then printed CMY negatives, and printed as a gum bichromate print. The print is made up of 12 layers of watercolour pigment on watercolour paper and took just over one week to make.
