Bob Carlos Clarke: Peep Show London, 30 March -14 May
By Rollerblade on March 30, 2011
The Little Black Gallery, in association with the Bob Carlos Clarke Foundation, announces Peep Show, the third part of a retrospective of work by the legendary photographer Bob Carlos Clarke.
The first two parts ‘Wall To Wall’ in 2009, and ‘Full Throttle’ in 2010 both caused much controversy. The exhibition will show a selection of images from Bob’s 30 year career. And following the successful release of the first series of estate editions in 2010, the Estate of Bob Carlos Clarke is releasing a second series of nine prints of some of Bob’s most famous images as 16” x 20” digital bromide prints in edition of 25, for £350 + VAT, including ‘Faithful Unto Death’, ‘Masked Blonde’ and ‘Cry Baby’.
The exhibition coincides with the announcement of the production of a film on Bob Carlos Clarke by directors Bert & Bertie.

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. Bob 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. He died in 2006 and is now recognised as one of Britain’s most important and collectable photographers. 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). A biography ‘Exposure’ by Simon Garfield was published by Ebury Press in 2009.
