John McDonald highlights Clara Adolphs practice in the Good Weekend Magazine:

'Clara Adolphs is not the first artist to be fascinated by the old photographs one finds in flea markets and junk shops. These faded snapshots, intended to immortalise loved ones and special events, have become mysteries, as we cannot identify people and places. Nevertheless it's easy to recall similar holidays and family outings, and enjoy a sense of familiarity.

It's in the nature of snapshots to concentrate on moments of leisure, and this is reflected in paintings such as Sunbather, where a woman relaxes in a deck chair, or Daylight Hours (pictured), in which three figures lie stretched out on the grass.'
