Barney Kulok was born in New York in 1981. He discovered photography as a young adolescent when his mother offered him a book about Irving Penn. He later enrolled at Bard College where he met photographer Vik Muniz, then a professor, who would become his mentor. The father of two of his friends, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, lent him the cameras he used to take his earliest portraits. Barney Kulok’s conceptual pictures seek to capture the city through a contemporary angle.
