“Too Many Nights: The Images of Bob Carlos Clarke”, provides an onscreen compendium of many of his most famous images. Known for his steamy, seductive and alluring images of women, Clarke perceived an ongoing correlation between photography and sex, and used extremely controversial methods to obtain the effects he sought from his models. This unique DVD can turn your living room into an erotic art gallery, offering up to 8 hours of lush, sensual images that have to be seen to be felt. Click here to buy.

The exhibition coincides with the publication of the biography, ‘‘Exposure: The Unusual Life and Violent Death of Bob Carlos Clarke’,’ by the award winning writer Simon Garfield (Ebury Press, 4 June 2009). The exhibition will feature pictures from Bob’s 30 year career , including pictures which have never been seen or made available for sale before.

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. 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.

The Little Black Gallery, in association with the Bob Carlos Clarke Foundation, is pleased to announce the first retrospective of the work of the legendary photographer Bob Carlos Clarke:

Back in the late 1980s I bought a poster in Elgin, Illinois by Bob Carlos Clarke entitled Poison, Poison, Poison. The model appears to be Tanya. I lovingly kept it in its container until 2001 and then had it framed. I have admired it everyday since. Can you tell me anything about how many were printed and the type of printing used in its production. Any other information would be appreciated.
