Tina Barney began her photographic career in the mid 1970’s capturing images of her family & friends in New York and New England. In the 1980’s, she started using an 8 x 10 view camera and developed a more directed style of portraiture. Between 1996 and 2004, she traveled to Austria, Italy, England, Spain, France and Germany to create her series The Europeans, a look at the inner circle of the Old World elite. Her work has been exhibited and collected by major institutions around the world and she was the recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship in 1991 and the 2010 Lucie Award for Achievement in Portraiture.
