March 2005: Frank Barnett Photography

Frank Barnett has been capturing dramatic photographic images for nearly half a century. Preferring to work in black and white, this award-winning photographer utilizes light and shadow with an exceptional degree of mastery. His images speak to us and resonate in our thoughts because of their emotional impact, yet allow us to form our own story about each photograph. Often sensuous, often haunting, Barnett' work is a reflection of the access he has gained to places normally denied the public - from the danger packed rodeo arena, to one of America' most notorious prisons, to the deathbed vigils of a hospice - his images pull you in to examine life through new eyes.
