Photographing the entropy of our world can be a difficult task. Although it is human and environmental nature, sometimes decay and destruction cannot be depicted in a beautiful light. Such is not the case with Michael Raymond Clarke's photography. His work depicts a beautiful chaos that oscillates between the excitement of a deconstructed world and the muted numbness of the leftovers. Of course, for his photography that does not fall into this generalization, Clarke's aesthetic is extremely appealing for its harsh indoor flashes, beautiful mediterranean colours, and plenty of white space. For those of you who are starting to see a pattern in photography that I tend toward, we would all agree that Clarke's contemporary aesthetic fits into onwhitewalls' mandate quite nicely.
