About the artist
He had the opportunity to work with the likes of Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, and Horst P Horst - each possessing incredibly unique styles and techniques. Clarke's role was to arrange the sets, an experience that enriched his understanding of their different approaches.
Clarke was fortunate to secure a spot at the esteemed New School for Social Research, under the tutelage of the legendary Alexey Brodovitch. Here, he refined his technical photography skills, while also absorbing insights on merging the fantastical element of fashion photography with the raw immediacy of photojournalism.
Over time, Clarke became a staple photographer for Vogue, crafting a unique aesthetic that seamlessly blended high fashion with a journalistic approach, giving birth to a style that was both elegant and grounded in reality.
