    David Clarke This faintly dark and enigmatic series of images is beautifully atmospheric and remind me of the work of Sarah Moon; one of my favourite photographic artists. The use of wet plate expertly adds another layer of complexity and links all the images together perfectly. As well as an innate beauty, I find most of the images to have a very slight undertone of menace which makes the series even more interesting. The work is delicately executed by someone who I am not surprised is a former painter.

    Wet Plate Photography, large Format

Originally a fine artist, I swapped my brushes for a camera and my colours for photochemistry. That’s how the ‘paintings’ that I never painted emerged. In wet plate photography, I found a suitable medium to bring my images into being. It comes very close to the process of painting. At the same time, I use the so-called objectivity of photography to develop my own artistic imagery. My artistic focus is on the portrait in the broadest sense, it is never about the portrait of an individual, it’s about the portrait of the human being per se.
