The first time I picked up a Polaroid camera I was hooked. Pens, markers, charcoal and paint were no match for the immediacy and clarity of photography. Over the past twenty years, I've had the pleasure of photographing celebrities like Calvin Klein, Elizabeth Gilbert, Barry White, Dr Dre, Taylor Swift and countless others. My work has been published in French Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, T-Magazine, Ocean Drive, Complot, Loft, Newsweek, US Weekly and People.
I am currently working in photography, graphic design, collage and multimedia. I also serve as the Director of Operations for the MPS Graduate Fashion Photography program at School of Visual Arts and produce the New York Fashion Film Festival, now in its seventh consecutive season.

"Barry's latest project, TORN, is a series of collages that brings together two contrasting but long-standing subjects of his photography: fashion and urban decay. "I've always been fascinated by the relentless, ever-changing nature of the urban environment and the romantic concept that in many ways the walls of our cities reflect not only our history- but also the struggle between our past and present." The collages in TORN are an extension of his fashion, portraiture and street photography, reimagining his portraits of friends, models, musicians and actors as post-apocalyptic recollections, faces and figures obscured, decayed and reshaped by the forces of nature. TORN examines the tensions between beauty and time and the idea that beautiful things can emerge from a world that often seems in a constant state of collapse. Work from TORN is currently on view at CRH NYC and Fat Free Art in the Lower East Side, Manhattan."
