His work presents his personal views on life, which people all over the world can relate to.
I find it very interesting how Gary Clare combines photography with graphic design and typography. The way he uses graphic design to make the images stand out and how they blend so well – it almost looks naturally like that. His choice of color isn’t too vibrant and the colors blend/go well together which, which has a massive effect to the minimal color on the images. He uses transparency of the graphic parts to bring through the background, which has a very interesting effect with the overlays. His work will modefinitely inspire me in my future work.
