Dark Summer takes its name from Bob Carlos Clarke’s third book, published in 1985. Carlos Clarke was an Irish-born, London-based photographer who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1975. Renowned for his erotic photographs as well as celebrity portraits and images for advertising, he knew Claire de Rouen well, and was crucial to the establishment of her bookshop in 2005 (above a sex shop, appropriately).
