Alan Clarke’s diverse body of work is infused with energy, attitude and colour. Combined with dedication, his particular brand of humour, with which he engages all his collaborators, brings success to even the most difficult subjects and situations. Alan creates a bold and dynamic vision of high contrast and sharp precision, particularly evident in his celebrity and advertising work. His images often have a glossy cinematic feel, using a high flash in daylight, or shooting at night; urban landscapes epitomise the atmosphere of hot city nights. Alan’s instinctive use of the play of light, tonal props and flashes of intense, lustrous colour are also present in the slower, stiller moments of his fashion portraiture and landscapes.
