ABOUT Stephen McNeill is a Canadian artist who grew up in the small town of Oak Ridges near Toronto.
Influenced by his experiences in the graphic arts and theatre, McNeill pursued a photographic career in the early 1980s. He is known for his compelling black and white images of street life and the performing arts, and for his oﬀ beat photo compositions of small objects.
An accomplished darkroom specialist, McNeill has devoted much of his time in recent years to alternative printmaking studies – a passion that has remained with him from the age of 16 when he borrowed a camera for a night school course and was given a lesson on the solarisation technique.
McNeill continues to contribute work to private collections, exhibitions, performance artists, publications, and educational and charitable institutions.
