Bob Carlos Clarke (1950–2006) was one of the 20th century’s great erotic photographers. Although he was born in Cork, Ireland – which he once described as “no place for a libidinous adolescent” – he was educated in Britain at a prestigious private boys school.
His 1994 series ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ is a photojournalistic recording of the traditional orgiastic spectacle of the private school ball: a place where boys and girls from the country’s elite schools come together to drink, to dance, and hopefully to get off with one another on the sofas. Clarke saw these hormone pressure cooker gatherings as a peculiar side effect of the British school education, in which access to the other sex is limited to the point of obsession.
