"My Italy" Photographs by Norfolk's Glen McClure to be on View in VMFA Exhibit at Richmond International Airport

June 15, 2009

RICHMOND, Virginia (June 15, 2009) - Glen McClure's photography exhibition "My Italy" offers a personal interpretation of a country he has visited many times.

The exhibition of the Norfolk artist's images opens June 15, at Richmond International Airport and is on view through Oct. 13, in a continuation of a collaboration between the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Capital Region Airport Commission.

"My Italy" comprises 19 color and black-and-white images taken between 2005 and 2007 that reflect the otherworldliness and timelessness McClure says he sees in Italy's people and places.

"I am always struck with the patina and textures of the surfaces," McClure says, "whether it be on a wall, a hill or a face."

Images in the show range from one in black-and-white of a small boy on a scooter on an older street to another of a gondola in blazing colors under a raking sun.

McClure, who was born in 1954, has concentrated on landscapes for many years and has produced series of panoramic works from the United States, Ireland and Italy. He focuses on images that evoke the universal and the individual. "I went to both countries expressly for the subject matter, the landscapes and the people," he explained. "Ireland was stark lines, all moody and misty, while Italy was just the opposite with light and old textures and patterns," he said in an interview with The Virginian-Pilot in March.

In 1996 and again in 2000, he was represented in the "Photography Annual" exhibition sponsored by Communication Arts magazine. He has participated in exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia in Virginia Beach, the Peninsula Fine Arts Center in Newport News, the Charles H. Taylor Arts Center in Hampton, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Visual Arts Center in Richmond. His work is also included in collections at Capital One, the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, and the Polaroid Collection in Massachusetts.

He has always known, he says, that he wanted to be a photographer. In his early 20s, he wrote to every photographer and studio in the Norfolk Yellow Pages: "I don't know a thing, but I want to learn to be a photographer. I'm willing to do anything, including sweeping the floor."

The Studio Center in Norfolk hired him as a photographer's assistant. He later became the in-house photographer at Arthur Polizos Associates public relations agency.

He cites two photographers as his primary influences - Czechoslovakia's Josef Sudek and America's Paul Strand. From Sudek he says he learned that the mundane is a valuable as the exotic, and from Strand he learned respect for traditional, timeless techniques. "My best work," McClure says, "appears as if I weren't there."
