As part of the ongoing lecture series hosted by Aperture and presented by the department of photography, Parsons The New School for Design, Tina Barney will discuss her work. Since 1975, Barney has been producing large-scale photographs of family and friends. Barney’s subjects are often seen in complex photographic compositions that invite intimate study of the behavior, social class, and notions of privilege suggested by the clothing, picturesque environments, and luxurious settings they inhabit. Barney’s photographs have appeared in the acclaimed books Tina Barney: Theater of Manners (Scalo), and in The Europeans (Steidl). Her work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums around the world.
