About Clark and Joan Worswick

Husband and wife Clark and Joan Worswick have devoted their careers to collecting, preserving, curating, and publishing photographic masters, as well as pursuing their own documentary projects. The Worswicks are celebrated for being the first to photograph the isolated nomadic communities of Ethiopia, which they visited in 1968 and documented in sensitive black-and-white images. They are also noted for having one of the foremost collections of Walker Evans photographs, which they rescued from dispersal and ruin. Clark Worswick describes his foray into collecting as an act of necessity: “I started collecting reluctantly…in order to preserve collections that were being split up and dispersed by people who didn’t know what they were selling, amongst people that didn’t know what they were buying.”
