    Glen McClure

    Glen McClure is known for his disarming images of people.  His simple unassuming approach is apparent in the openness of his subjects.  Glen's other primary focus is the unpopulated landscape.

    Norfolk-based photographer, Glen McClure spent years visiting shipyards throughout Hampton Roads searching for the faces of the faceless men and women who form the foundation of our coastal economy.  His photos were exhibited not only at the Chrysler Museum but also regionally, at the Peninsula Fine Art Center, Portsmouth Art and Cultural Center and the Charles H. Taylor Art Center.
