Tim Barber “Relations” at Capricious 88, New York

Tim Barber’s most recent body of work, is a continuation of his ongoing photographic explorations. Culling from everyday life experience, Barber’s images reveal the subtle yet complex narratives hidden in seemingly mundane subject matter. The images have an unusual balance, feeling spontaneous yet carefully composed, blunt yet ethereal, familiar yet mysterious, comfortable yet haunted by an invisible, emotional tension. It’s this tension that the title Relations alludes to; the tension between the countless relationships happening in and around the frame of each photograph, and the relationships the photographs then have, in turn, to each other. “Relations” is on view until June 23rd at Capricious 88, New York. Photo Elise Gallant
