Lincoln Clarkes is a consumate documentary photographer. His subjects look at the hidden body of knowledge accessible only by the photographic lens. His photographs are candid looks at portraiture that examine human nature and street culture. Clarkes is well respected for his eclectic examination of “straight photography” capturing the utterance,the humanity of everyday life while also providing a sly critique of the glamour and romanticization of situational fashion photographs. Clarkes has published photographic essays with Anvil Press (Vancouver) and Quattro Press (Toronto), in addition to being shown in An Evolutionary Look at Street Photography (2014) at the Vancouver Museum.
