Born in Canada, McLaren found a passion for documentary photography at a young age. Learning the craft from his father in their darkroom. An ideal that continues in his work to the present.
With a strong interest in human circumstance, McLaren’s work often focuses on sharing stories of people and communities which are little known. Always with a strong theme of bringing the unseen, unique or unusual to the viewer. His work is based around personal connections and unconventional moments.
McLaren developed this essence of the hidden with a spontaneous approach to documenting a moment in its purity without any contravention or encroachment of perceptions or values, either placed by himself or outside shifts in awareness.
