Barry McCall is one of Ireland’s most influential photographers.
Specialising in fashion, advertising, beauty and portraiture, his distinctive style brings a classic and timeless touch to contemporary photography.
PHO20GRAPHY, a 20 year retrospective of his work published in 2010, showcases his work with some of the world’s top supermodels, including Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen, Yasmin Le Bon, Sophie Dahl and Erin O’Connor. He has also worked with everyone from Michael Fassbender and Richard Branson to Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, U2 and Gabriel Byrne.
This 20 year retrospective, in aid of the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, showcases a style that celebrates the very best of fashion and portraiture, pushing the boundaries of technique and vision to create true works of art. In 2012, an exhibition of Barry’s works was held in the Copper House Gallery in Dublin, transferring some of his most influential imagery from book to large format print.
He has been commissioned by leading creative agencies such as Ogilvy & Mather, McCann Erickson and DDFH&B, while his clients range from Coca Cola, Bulova and Sony to Adidas, Universal Music, L’Oreal and Chanel. His work has appeared internationally in magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and Tatler.
Barry continues to be inspired by his first loves: classic art, old movies and the ever changing fashion of our times.
