Clare Park’s creative energy and insight into physical psychology and human behaviour enable those around her to fully participate in photographic storytelling, whether that be a portrait, interior or landscape image.
Clare originally trained as a ballet dancer, after which she studied photography at the Royal College of Art and began exploring the form of self-portraiture, developing this work through personal narratives of her own life journey.
The body, movement and the collaborative process with her subjects form the foundation to Clare’s work, and her strong personal style is evident in the posters she devises for theatre companies, such as the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, as well as for editorials, portraiture and books.
She recently self-published Breaking Form: Re-Formed about one man’s journey with Parkinson’s, and A Square Foot of Sky, a memoir of a woman’s experiences of many years spent in secure institutions.
Clare’s imagery has been widely exhibited and is held in permanent collections at the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A Royal Photographic Collection.
