Bob Carlos Clarke

Bob Carlos Clarke (1950-2006).

Described by Terence Pepper, former Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery (UK) as "one of the great photographic image-makers of the last few decades".

Often referred to as Britain’s answer to Helmut Newton, Bob Carlos Clarke was born in Cork, Ireland in 1950. His photographic approach is best known for his carefully composed and highly constructed photographs, where glamour and provocation rub shoulders. His visual interests – women and rubber, in particular – sealed his reputation as a photographer of erotic black and white images.

From celebrity portraiture to photojournalism and advertising photography, his work covers almost every sphere of photography, often pushing the boundaries of art and acceptability. 

Bob's works are highly collectible and have been acquired by national art galleries including the National Portrait Gallery (UK), National Media Museum for the National Photography Collection (UK), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum (USA), and Crawford Art Gallery (Ireland); as well as private collections including the Michael Wilson Centre of Photography and the Elton John Photography Collection.
