Bob Carlos Clarke

Born in 1950 - United Kingdom


Bob Carlos Clarke was born in Cork, Ireland in 1950, and came to England in 1964 to study art and design at The West Sussex College of Art where he developed an interest in photography. He then went on to The London College of Printing, before completing his degree at the Royal College of Art in 1975.

According to Terence Pepper, Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery de Londres, Bob Carlos Clarke is "one of the great photographic image-makers of the last few decades".

He worked in almost every sphere of photography, winning numerous awards for his high-profile advertising campaigns, recognition for his photojournalism and portraits of celebrities, and international acclaim from collectors of fine prints.

Bob Carlos Clarke produced six books: The Illustrated Delta of Venus (1979), Obsession (1981), The Dark Summer (1985), White Heat (1990), Shooting Sex (2002), and Love Dolls Never Die (2004).

He died in 2006. His works are now highly collectable and have been acquired by national art galleries including the National Portrait Gallery, National Media Museum for the National Photography Collection, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.
