ABOUT THE WORK
In addition to her NYC “Subway Series”, Barbara’s most recent work captures the texture and drama of the New Mexico landscape, making full use of photography’s many alternatives. The expansive views rich in history are uplifting to one’s spirit. Photographing the Spanish Mustang, a living legend and national treasure, has also become a passion.
Barbara’s artwork reflects meticulous attention to detail and preparation to insure archival quality. A favorite image is worked in various applications: a 30X40 black & white print is oil tinted; negatives are created to employ the Platinum/Palladium process, the most archival of all photographs.
“Working in the darkroom takes me on a journey. It is an endless exploration of the possibilities, a pilgrimage. It is an intimate experience, getting lost with creation and the image selected. The still photograph is a freezing of a moment, of catching an expression in time, to be savored over and over again.”
