Joseph McGlennon (1957–) was born in Scotland and arrived in Australia in 1964. He completed a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a Diploma of Education at the University of South Australia and is now based in Singapore. McGlennon came to practice fine art photography after a career in design and marketing. He held his first solo exhibition at Michael Reid Gallery in 2011, and has since exhibited his work widely in Australia and overseas.

His compositions are deliberately unreal and each incorporates multiple photographs from multiple destinations around the world.
