Back in Feburary of this year I got caught out in the blizzard in NYC. I went back east to do some art scouting and studio visits and caught up with an old school homie and acclaimed photographer Barron Claiborne. The first two shots below are what Barron and I took on that trip but that wasn’t the first time I sat for him. The last pic is part of a Madonna series he was doing a few years ago. That body of work is extensive and very detailed. Barron’s work can be seen in galleries all over the world and museums around the country. He will be debuting a new series at my gallery next month so stay tuned and drop by April 15.
