Clinton Friedman

Above: Photograph magnificently captured can be found in his Flight&Freedom collection; The Elephant Cropping paired with a Black Botanical collection.

Talented photographer Clinton Friedman has taken many hearts captive by his inspiring photography. Some of you may know him by his Aloe prints and Polaroid Studies but he offers much more. Photographs from insect studies and trees to botanical and animals. His understanding and passion for nature and his wonderful use of light forms a beautifully orchestrated photograph which exposes the balanced feeling of being one with nature.

Not only can you buy these photographs, prints or pressings for framing but you can enjoy his work on textiles as seen on the scatter cushions as well as homeware, gifts and accessories items. I have my eye on some of those cushions and my heart is set on the elephant prints as Elephants are my favourite animals.

What I love about Clinton’s work is that you can sense his humble character and the gentle temperament he holds to the nature and the people he photographs, which to me means a great deal when supporting an artist and choosing a piece of art. One has to agree or connect with the artists work and with Clinton, it’s very easy to welcome that character displayed in his work.

Above: Black &White Grafik Botanical print grouped with coastline shots create a perfect balance; some of Clinton’s Scatter cushion collection beautifully made; below are 2 prints from Clinton’s Iconic Africa collection.

If you are wanting to get any information on sales or stockists or to simply get inspired by Clinton’s work, take a long look through his website here.

Thank you, Clinton for allowing Creative Stream to write a little about your incredible work. Every piece you have is inspiring, unique and filled with an African flavour that consumes a person from anywhere in the world with a wish to see more of the innocence of nature.
