Since 2002 Patrick Clarke has been inspired to put together collections of photographs into books. Patrick wishes you to see how his style of photography has evolved over time and via the different equipment, computing and software the business has amassed. "Each photograph shown reflects something about the way in which I understand the world around me and is key to who I am".

Barcelona - Street & Street Art 2002

Barcelona - Street & Street Art 2002

Barcelona is a whirlwind of heritage, civic pride, expression and art. The street art is multitude and not discouraged. Grand scale construction sites are walled with full ply sheets; soon these become decorated and over decorated. The shelf life of one design is limited as another soon takes its place.

Linden House 2010

Linden House 2010

Having undergone extensive renovation, Linden House went to market in 2010 and I produced this book of photographs as a high quality marketing tool to be placed in the hands of the principle agents. The photographs depict a haven of sophistication and tranquillity which amongst a family with four young and energetic children was a great result.

What Eyesore - Seven years of digital photography 2002 -2009

Natural reflected light and colour make for an exciting image capture; digital photography is a blessing. The ability to instantly review a shot, to zoom in and check focus, means one never has to leave a location without the desired result. This is an efficient use of time, creativity and resources.

I was offered an internship by Marie-Noelle Swiderski of Blanchard FZ LLC; the UAE branch of a successful interior design business established in Londonʼs Primrose Hill. To procure an internship was one of the requirements of successfully completing the first year of the interior design for retail environments degree course at the L.C.C.

Morel Farm

Morel Farm

Walking through the door of this vacant Trust property for the first time got all of my senses bristling. This building is in a limbo state between past and future inhabitants, there are few artefacts to draw the eye so the space and light are more apparent; there is a stillness and an eerie quiet. Having the opportunity to spend time alone in a Trust property I find myself shooting a storyboard in my mind as I am thinking about the brief and visualising finished results.

Bellozanne Abbey 2012

Bellozanne Abbey 2012

This first experience of photographing an inhabited building for the Trust was fascinating as the property has been lived in by the same family for decades and is full of artefacts from around the world. Here, my particular style of photography investigates the relationship between place and artefact and attempts to describe what occurred in the day-to-day running of the household as sometimes these memories are long forgotten or no longer able to be told.
