Another annual John McRae portrait... the original is on his instagram @citronal ・・・
Pigment inkjet on cotton rag, 112cm x 80cm
Edition of 9 (2AP)
John McRae, 2018
Every year I photograph Matthew Mitcham, Australia’s gold-medal Olympic diver, award-winning cabaret performer and television entertainer, in my studio. This portrait is added to a series of similar portaits, one taken every year, which commenced in 2008, before his rise to Olympic fame.
Each portrait is taken under similar conditions. MMXVIII marks the 11th portrait and the 11th year of this on-going series.
Thank you Matt for your support in continuing this series, in allowing a very public view of your "personal time-line". I am still wondering if you will ever age?
The complete sequence can be seen at
The series is printed by the artist in an edition of 9, with 2 artist proofs, and is available for purchase.
