Fin Macrae is a self taught photographic and video artist based in the Highlands of Scotland. Having been professional for over 4 years and working on his own for the past 18 months he has worked on a number of projects for The Highland Council, Save the Children, The Princess Royal Trust and also The Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Commissioned work includes clients as diverse as Orange, Citroen, Channel 4, HOST and record labels and publishers.
Exhibitions of his work have been shown in venues such as The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, The Scottish Parliament and The V&A, London.
Fin takes his inspiration from the sea and the land as well as the people who inhabit it. His work often alludes to what lies outside the frame and invites the viewer to imagine the unseen. He is attracted to small details; focusing on the minutia of the wider picture. He has been influenced by the work of a variety of photographers - Josef Koudelka’s eye for detail, Edward Weston’s landscapes, David Kokos’ & Rolfe Horn’s minimalism and perhaps most significantly Sebastiao Salgado’s ability to capture the essence of life.
