About this title

Synopsis:

The social class that Tina Barney photographs might well be called the flaky upper crust. Originally part of that culture herself, Barney started out making pictures of her own tony family, then other American Eastern seaboard swells, and now she turns her lens on a Grand Tour of European grand dames and hommes. Theatrically posed, but catching the intruding serendipitous gesture, her pictures are at once distant and intimately funny, Olympian and down-to-earth, imperious and impetuous. A young man in gold-bedecked bullfighting regalia poses before a sumptuous curtain, his hauteur faintly ridiculous outside of the bullring. A French father leans a little too hard on an heirloom chair, while his son beside him seems to wipe his nose in a decidedly undignified way.

About the Author:

Tina Barney was born in New York City in 1945. She began collecting photographs in 1971, and soon moved behind the camera herself. Her works are in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Yale University Art Gallery. In 1999, the Columbus Museum of Art organized a traveling retrospective of her work.
