Clarisse d'Arcimoles

Naddy Photomaton (Grandmother), from the series Un-Possible Retour

College/University: Central Saint Martins
Course Level/Title: Pg Cert : Photography

Clarisse d'Arcimoles presents original photographs alongside restaged versions of the same image in an attempt to reconnect with the past. Drawing from a collection of family snapshots, d’Arcimoles focuses our attention sharply on the concept of aging while ensuring a consistency of location. Fascinated with the irretrievability of the past and on photography’s strength in making memories tangible, Clarisse's practice uses time as a collaborative partner, accepting its discrepancies and playing with the results. www.clarisse-darcimoles.com
