Saint Laurent Rive Droite presents an exhibition by Bob Carlos Clarke

Saint Laurent Rive Droite welcomes artist Bob Carlos Clarke for an exceptional exhibition at Rive Droite stores in Paris and Los Angeles.

Often referred to as Britain’s answer to Helmut Newton, Bob Carlos Clarke was born in Cork, Ireland in 1950. His photographic approach is best known for his carefully composed and highly constructed photographs, where glamour and provocation rub shoulders. His visual interests – women and rubber, in particular – sealed his reputation as a photographer of erotic black and white images.

From celebrity portraiture to photojournalism and advertising photography, his work covers almost every sphere of photography, often pushing the boundaries of art and acceptability. Far from merely provocative or erotic, Bob Carlos Clarke’s images can be delicate, elegant and humorous. Anthony Vaccarello has selected twenty key photographs from the artist to be exhibited in the two Saint Laurent Rive Droite stores, including COURTESAN; CITY GIRL; KEITH RICHARDS SMOKING and ELTON JOHN.

A dedicated exhibition catalog will be available in store.
