About Claire Newman-Williams

 
 
  • Biography

    Claire Newman-Williams is a British photographic artist.  Whether crafting  photographic prints or mixed media collages, Claire creates images that appear to have been pulled from the no-mans land that exists between imagination and reality.  These images, often described as “filmic” and “haunting”,  leave us wondering which world they inhabit. Are they created in our contemporary world,  or are these vintage-looking images visual echoes plucked from another era?

    Her art work has been exhibited at the London Art Fair and Miami Context with Turner Barnes Gallery  and she was named one of 4 must-see artists at The Other Art Fair, Bristol by Rebecca Wilson of SaatchiArt.

    Although she studied English at University, Claire went on to work in photography, learning her craft in seven years of freelance assisting in America.  This was followed by 20 years experience as an editorial and portrait photographer in both the UK and the US where her work has appeared in numerous national and international publications including Time Magazine, The New York Times and The Advocate. She  returned to the UK in 2005 and in 2014 began to focus more on fine art photography and collage.

    Using a mixture of historical processes, analog and digital cameras, her inspiration comes from sources as diverse as the etchings of Rembrandt,  the films of modern cinematic masters like David Lynch, or the loneliness of the music of Lucinda Williams.
