Nobby Clark - photo archive of the rock'n'roll and theatre photographer

“Strong and dramatic his pictures have the knack of always letting you know what the characters in the scene are thinking. His instinct for making the shutter click at precisely the right moment seems never to have faltered. I wish we were all so richly endowed – but at least he insists that we don’t just look, we SEE” Sir Peter Hall.

The perfect summary of famed photographer Nobby Clark’s brilliant photography. His coverage of stage, screen, rock n’roll and all subjects in between are an integral part of the UK’s visual performing and non performing history over the last 40 years and includes productions from our foremost arts organisations including The National, RSC, Donmar, Royal Opera, Royal Ballet and many of our leading directors: Richard Eyre; Trevor Nunn; Billy Bryden; John Dexter; Alan Ayckbourn; John Schlesinger and Peter Hall to name a few.

Recent publications include ‘Bryden and Clark, Lives in the Theatre’; ‘Close up Magic – 40 years at the Bush Theatre’; ‘A Decade at the Donmar 2002-2012’; Northern Broadsides: 20 years’ but, possibly the highlight of them all, was being included in the ‘Rolling Stones : ‘50 exhibition’ at London’s Somerset House. His original Rolling Stones images were first published collectively in Starf*cker – a photographic documentary which Nobby best describes as a “celebration of the greatest rock'n'roll band on the planet”.
