Roger-Viollet: –Henry Clarke Archives


The American photographer Henry Clarke (1918-1996) discovered that fashion photography was his calling after meeting Horst, Cecil Beaton and Irving Penn. Arriving in paris at 31, he began working for Vogue (the French, English and American editions) and stayed there for 20 years. A star photographer at French Vogue, Clarke was given charge of high-profile fashion reports along with the celebrity pages. His collaboration 1964 to 1969 with Diana Vreeland, the editor-in-chief of American Vogue, was decisive: twice a year, she sent him out under the sun to photograph summer fashion. He returned with “exotic” images which were published in 20-page spreads. After Vogue, Clarke worked with various women’s magazines until 1991. His work is at the Musée Galliera and the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, which inherited Clarke’s archives in 1997. Roger-Viollet handles the distribution of this exceptional body of work.
