Robert Carlos Clarke (24 June 1950, County Cork – 25 March 2006, Barnes, London) was an Irish photographer, known for his highly stylised erotic imagery. In 1970, Clarke studied graphics at the West Sussex College of Art. Later, he received an MA from the Royal College of Art. Carlos Clarke photographed celebrities such as Keith Richards, Dita Von Teese, Caprice, Marco Pierre White and Rachel Weisz; many of these were his friends and acquaintances, some of them through his agent Ghislain Pascal, who represented some of his clients. He was also, for many years, very good friends with the late Lord Patrick Lichfield. During an interview with those who knew him, including his second wife Lindsay and agent for the August 2008 issue of Professional Photographer, it was said that Lichfield’s death affected Clarke badly. After many years of suffering from severe clinical depression, Carlos Clarke committed suicide in London: he left the Priory clinic where he had been receiving treatment and walked to a railway line in Barnes, where he threw himself in front of a passenger train travelling from Windsor to Waterloo. He was subsequently given a humanist funeral service prior to burial at Brompton Cemetery. Clarke was married twice and had one daughter, Scarlett Carlos Clarke, with his second wife Lindsey, an ex-model whom he met at a photoshoot. Just prior to his death, Carlos Clarke was working on a permanent exhibition titled Dark Genius for White’s London restaurant named Luciano. Following his suicide, it was left to his wife and agent Pascal to complete the work. He produced five books during his career: The Illustrated Delta of Venus (1979), Obsession (1981), The Dark Summer (1985), White Heat (with Marco Pierre White, 1990), and Shooting Sex (2003).
Anaïs Nin (born Angela Anaïs Juana Antolina Rosa Edelmira Nin y Culmell) (February 21, 1903, Neuilly-sur-Seine – January 14, 1977) was a French author who became famous for her published journals, which span more than 60 years, beginning when she was 11 years old and ending shortly before her death. The most famous book of Anaïs Nin is Delta of Venus. It was first published in 1978. There are multiple short stories in this work with certain important characters reappearing throughout. She deals with many different sexual themes, while maintaining the balance of her life’s work: the study and description of woman. The collection of short stories that makes up this anthology was written during the 1940s for a private client known simply as “Collector”’. This “Collector” commissioned Nin, along with other now well-known writers (including Henry Miller), to produce erotic fiction for his private consumption. Despite being told to leave poetic language aside and concentrate on graphic, sexually explicit scenarios, Nin was able to give these stories a literary flourish and a layer of images and ideas beyond the pornographic. In the introduction, she called herself “the madam of this snobbish literary house of prostitution”. The stories range in length from less than a page to one hundred times that, and are tied together not just by their sexual premises, but also by Nin’s distinct style and feminine viewpoint.
Some quotes by Anaïs Nin: “Eroticism is one of the basic means of self-knowledge, as indispensable as poetry.” “We don’t have a language for the senses. Feelings are images, sensations are like musical sounds.” “The body is an instrument which only gives off music when it is used as a body. Always an orchestra, and just as music traverses walls, so sensuality traverses the body and reaches up to ecstasy.”
‘Sicuramente Delta of Venus è il più autentico e curioso libro dell'erotismo femminile. Fa l'inventario di tutte le stravaganze del desiderio. E’ Anaïs nel paese delle meraviglie sessuali’. (Sarane Alexandrian, 'Storia della Letteratura Erotica’)
«L’arte, tutta l’arte, è essenzialmente politica. Non può mai essere solo apparentemente politica. Perché la politica è tutto, è l’arma politica che vi permette di stare qui». Sorride appena, accennando a una pausa. «Pensate a questo: quando salite sul palco siete come i vostri fratelli sem terra che occupano il latifondo. Pensateci, stasera, quando salirete sul palco, anche voi starete occupando le terre del latifondo. È il vostro modo di fare politica. È il vostro modo di cambiare il mondo. Il vostro modo di cambiare la realtà ».

Ci è piaciuta molto questa frase, scritta da Giovanni Arpino, riferita all'artista
“Una casa coi tetti di legno a Vitebsk, e poi una soffitta a Parigi sono il mondo intero, il massimo paradiso possibile, la felicità e la malinconia indimenticabile, il vero e il sognato, ciò che è e ciò che è passato, e sempre senza rimedio” Noi, la pensiamo così, e le tracce di Chagall che seguiamo, sono sospese fra queste felicità e malinconie, sognate, vibranti, vere, impalpabili.
