  • merican photographer. Tina Barney was born into a wealthy, upper class New York family. Her grandfather introduced her to photography when she was a young girl, and Barney began collecting photographs at the age of 26. It was not until the mid-1970’s that Barney personally started working with photography. Initially, as a bored housewife living a life of leisure, Barney focused on candid snapshots of her well-to-do family and relatives set amongst an array of lavishly decorated backdrops, including classy New York apartments and plush New England vacation homes
  • For his process, Heinecken decided  that enough photographs existed in the real world already, and therefore he didn’t need to take more. Instead he used what was already taken and manipulated them in extraordinary ways. His art became and attempt to clarify, reveal, and sometimes confound the subliminal social, political, and artistic codes they contain
  • In this famous artwork, John Hilliard uses the same photographic image, but by changing the crop and title he manages to completely change the meaning of each image.The text ‘anchors’ the meaning to a different interpretation or meaning for each image.
  • The mask in his photos plays with deliberate vagueness and mystery, the same way a Zen riddle is constructed to promote contemplation. For me, it takes away all emotion from the photos, creating a dead, blank stare. The static postures of the people along with the gritty scenery also adds a kind of depressing look. I have no idea what Ralph wanted people to feel when they looked at his photos, but the deliberate anonymity of his photos allows the viewer derive any meaning they want from it.
  • He began to explore experimental storytelling and the potentials of combining image and text with “Rich and Poor”, (1977-1985), where he juxtaposed the residents of welfare hotel rooms with the upper class and their elegantly furnished home interiors to investigate the nature of American myths about class, power, and happiness. In “Raised by Wolves” (1985-1995), he worked closely with and documented runaway teenagers in San Francisco and Los Angeles to create a book and exhibition that combined original photographs, text, home movie stills, snapshots, drawings, diary entries as well as single and multi-channel video, sculpture, found objects, light boxes and other 3-D elements.
