Claire Newman-Williams is the UK’s leading headshot photographer and photographic artist.

Claire was born and raised in England and moved to America in 1988 where she worked primarily as a portrait photographer.

Her work appeared in numerous national and international publications including Time Magazine, The New York Times and The Advocate. Claire Newman-Williams returned to the UK in 2005.

 A New Direction

After 20 years of working as a commercial and editorial photographer Claire Newman-Williams had become disenchanted by the hours spent sitting in front of a computer tweaking digital files and making people look pretty. She wanted her work to reflect more of her life. It has been said that creativity can simply be the process of learning about ourselves and for Claire Newman-Williams, the change that led to being an artist was when she stopped looking for things to photograph that could be “fine art” images and started looking instead for emotions and memories, feelings and thoughts she wanted to express. 

Claire Newman-Williams began by combining her own photographs with text and the inscriptions that other generations have left behind in old books to build a story using layers of recalled experience and nostalgia. These images collected in the project named “Strata” were printed on a textured Japanese paper and then mounted on antique book covers.

This process of layering evolved into the assemblage work she is currently working on.

‘Vaudeville 1’ is a wonderful piece of assemblage art by contemporary artist Claire Newman-Williams.

Mixed Media Assemblage Illuminated Box

Claire Newman-Williams’ story boxes are intended to be like inner landscapes, addressing the recurrent themes of the smothering of identity and our fear of being seen – truly seen by those around us. Claire Newman-Williams sources the boxes themselves from auctions and house clearances and the contents of the box are her own photography.

“I found a box of old magic lantern slides encased in lovely old glass frames at an auction and they just captured my imagination. I began thinking of ways that I could illuminate them in a way that would re-create that sort of vignetted, almost cinematic effect that they would have had originally and came up with the idea of creating little boxes to put them in. Once I started taking the slides apart I realised I could use the vintage glass, print my own imagery on a transparent substrate, add in some diffusion and thus the illuminated boxes were born! The first boxes were made of mdf and painted, but then I saw some really beautiful walnut wood, thought it would look great and I’ve been using it ever since.”

“I found a box of old magic lantern slides encased in lovely old glass frames at an auction and they just captured my imagination. I began thinking of ways that I could illuminate them in a way that would re-create that sort of vignetted, almost cinematic effect that they would have had originally and came up with the idea of creating little boxes to put them in. Once I started taking the slides apart I realised I could use the vintage glass, print my own imagery on a transparent substrate, add in some diffusion and thus the illuminated boxes were born! The first boxes were made of mdf and painted, but then I saw some really beautiful walnut wood, thought it would look great and I’ve been using it ever since.”
