News from Berlin - A selection of black and white photography' by the Irish photographer and illustrator James Clancy will be on display for the months of July and August at the Irish Embassy in Berlin.

The Irish fine art photographer and illustrator is widely distinguished for his striking black-and-white urban and nature landscape photography and art print illustrations. In his photos art James manages to evoke a sense of mystery, nostalgia and a sense of noir in a very natural way.

James Clancy is currently a resident of Berlin but is originally a Corky native and started his artistic career in his home country. His early inspirations can be closely linked to his film studies, where he developed a fondness for Classic Film Noir with its aesthetic and thematic qualities. Before launching his artistic career he worked in film making, music and theatre, producing works which were presented and screened at film festivals and on national television.

His love of photography grew from these experiences and his urban photography is characterized by dark shadows of the night, solitary objects and the contrasts created from street lighting similar to that of Classic Film Noir.

Since 2002 he has been working solely on photography with most of his works taken in black and white. Due to his background in film studies, much of James Clancy’s art consist of photo series and have a narrative character. Since 2006 James has been exhibiting widely in Europe and Asia.

However, Clancy also focuses on landscape and panorama photographs that were taken all over Europe, such as his home country Ireland, his residence Berlin, Switzerland, Paris, Croatia and many more

His diverse work can be admired throughout the months of July and August at the Irish Embassy in Berlin. The Embassy is located just off Berlin’s Gendarmenmarkt at Jägerstraße 51 and can also be easily reached by public transport. The U-Bahnhof (metro) station “Hausvogteiplatz” (U2 line) is just a few minutes’ walk from Embassy.
