Ken Clarke Beneath the surface

Work by Ken Clarke

A highly personal exploration of ideas of truth, sexuality, obsession and hope, this work was inspired by someone close reminding me that ‘hope is all you need’. Explicit images are layered to reflect the meanings and truths I wished to convey, using Photoshop to first manipulate the images and then combine them in their new context.
