Speaking to BJP today, Ghislain Pascal, one of the directors of The Little Black Gallery, has confirmed that a film on the life and work of the celebrated photographer Bob Carlos Clarke will be produced, with directors Bert & Bertie at the helm.
The news come as The Little Black Gallery, which counts Tamara Beckwith and Lindsey Carlos Clarke as co-directors with Pascal, and The Estate of Bob Carlos Clarke announced it will put up the third part of a retrospective of the photographer's work.
The exhibition will show a selection of Clarke's images taken during his 30-year career. The Estate will also release a second series of nine prints of "some of Bob's most famous images," as 16x20-inch digital bromide prints in edition of 25 for £350 +VAT.
The exhibition comes two years after "Wall to Wall", which went on show in 2009, and a few months after "Full Throttle", which caused "much controversy," says the London-based gallery.
In April 2010, The Little Black Gallery received the visit of police officers after they received complaints from neighbours over one of Clarke's images shown in the gallery's window. The image, called "Tite Street", appeared "to show a man having rear entry sex with a woman who is bent double and not wearing any knickers," wrote a police officer in a report sent to the gallery. He added: "Of course, this is not the appropriate place to have a debate about art verses pornography. It is my assessment that 'Tite Street' should not able to be clearly viewed from the street. I strongly advise that 'Tite Street' is moved." Read BJP's report - Police officers object to 'pornographic' image by Bob Carlos Clarke [21 April 2010].
