Clare Marie Bailey
Works and Lives: UK


Clare Marie Bailey is a UK based photographer and was born and grew up on the Island of Anglesey in Wales.  Clare became interested in world cinema which would later become an enduring influence on her photographic work.


Her passion for Polaroid and instant film photography began when she became mesmerised and fell deeply in love with its dynamic and at times mercurial and almost random character; its ability to give an almost perfect imperfection.


Clare's work, centred on self-portraits, is heavily influenced by the Cinema, Magical Iconography, Dreams, and the Counterculture of the 1960 s and B-Movies. Clare uses film to work towards creating an alternative and parallel world where she can co-exist with the 'real' world and is fascinated with the idea of 'doubles'  and  'doppelgangers' and the concept of reinvention. 


Clare believes all art is a form of magic and using memory, emotion and imagination to manipulate materials and create imagery is a form of alchemy.


 Her work has been exhibited in many group shows and most recently was exhibited as part of Image Nations 'Instant Art Paris' the International Polaroid Exhibition in Galerie Joseph Turenne, Paris.
Currently working on a new body of work, Clare has also been creating film shorts to accompany her still work. Clare is a group member of the 12:12 project for 2019 that brings together international Polaroid Artists who shoot a different theme for each month throughout the year.
