Photographer of the moment Tommy Clarke has taken some of the most extraordinary and instantly recognisable photographs of beaches and coastlines around the world, and he is now firmly established as one of Britain's most collectable art photographers. Following his wildly successful solo exhibition last autumn he recently opened his own gallery in South London and launched a collection of beachwear based on his photographs with M&S Menswear.
Clarke famously hangs out of helicopters and small aircraft to capture mesmerising shapes and colours from the air, giving his images a very distinct and recognisable style. Hanging out of helicopters with no doors clutching a camera may seem extreme, but Clarke's daredevil flights have enabled him to capture a new perspective of the most beautiful locations on earth. His vivid aerial photographs of beaches, salt lakes and bubbling geysers make earth look like abstract art.
'Up In The Air' comes to the Bosham Gallery from the Truman Brewery in London.
