Bob Carlos Clarke takes it up a gear

Interest has somewhat piqued in Bob Carlos Clarke since his untimely death, back in 2006. The notorious Irish photographer – best known for his super-erotic black and white shots of women in a range of compromising positions– will this month be remembered with a second posthumous show at London’s Little Black Gallery.

Following last year’s sell out ‘Wall to Wall’ exhibition, 'Full Throttle' will reveal a range of Clarke’s more libidinous snaps, alongside shots of friends including Keith Richards, Dita von Teese and Marco Pierre White. Nine of Clarke’s most famous early works will also be released for the first time as a series of ‘estate editions’, available for £350 a pop. The show is to remain in-situ until 5 June, so be sure to head down – providing the kids are kept otherwise engaged.
