This piece is a triptych of images shot 20 years apart. The image of the woman was taken as part of a series with a plastic holga camera in a field on a cold wintry day in North Lincolnshire; the other 2 images fairly recently. When I shoot, I regularly find myself capturing somewhat random images that inspire me at the time, but have no real sense of context. That comes later when I layer together the different elements of a piece to create a narrative. In the moments that I capture the images it’s more like being a collector than a photographer. It’s in the post-photographic process that the story is told. Large size edition of 8. Small size edition of 25

Claire Newman-Williams is a British photographic artist. Whether crafting mixed media collages or photographic prints, 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.
