Barbara got her BA in Editorial Photography from University of Brighton, and is currently pursuing a Photography MA in the same place. Her work has been included in exhibitions in Brighton, London, Barcelona, Majorca, and New York City, and used for live recording CDs officially released to fans by Ryan Adams and The Cardinals. Her work is featured on the University of Brighton Faculty of Arts website Barbara Taylor, which shows her series titled "Beds".
She's unique in her technique as she doesn't usually have something in mind when taking a photo and in her words: "I don't usually approach a subject with an agenda. I connect with the spirit of the place and follow my intuition, telling both my story and the story inspired by the place. Although I do not specialize in portraits, I do love photographing the people close to me, as I feel I have an insight into their essence which I am looking for."
While portraiture isn't a regular part of her work, as you can see from these photos, she aces that as well. I'm so happy to have such lovely photographs of myself and my family, and done so candidly without the fuss of a formal sitting! (Where the photographers do indeed catch me at my worst as I never learned how to pose, my daughter however has it down pat!)
All of these photos were taken by Barbara in Brighton while visiting and enjoying her gracious hospitality, and I'm in dept to her for giving me such beautiful memorable pictures.
If you are interested in her work and wish to contact her, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org If you own a gallery, I suggest you consider her for an exhibition!
Cheers and many thanks to Barbara!
