Although currently residing in Teaneck, Barbara grew up in NYC.Having a city upbringing with parks nearby and summers in the Catskills, Barbara learned to appreciate the beauty and wonder of nature, people and the world. She was influenced by her father and uncles who were all into photography, as hobbies, always taking pictures of the family and events. And so, Barbara had started taking her own pictures at a young age, but even more so since her daughter was born 26 years ago. Truly appreciating the capturing of history and the world’s uniqueness through pictures, photography has since become a passion. Her work is on display in various venues throughout the year.
She has attended the Puffin Camera Club for a number of years and her work is currently on display at the Teaneck Creek (within the park) as part of the ‘Windows on the Park IV Public Space –Private’ an exhibit during the month of May. At the Puffin Cultural Forum her work is part of the ‘Perspectives in Nature: Collages From the Creek’ also on display during May.
‘Have camera will travel!’; ‘Can’t leave home without the camera!’ Barbara puts a new meaning to ‘stop and smell the roses’ to ‘stop, smell, look, appreciate and take a picture of the roses, and anything else she sees as amazing, interesting, unique, or just plain pretty!’She inspires and challenges others to look at the world through grateful eyes. Barbara finds peace, joy and harmony when she is taking pictures, especially in nature and sharing them with others. Barbara loves watching others appreciate and view her work through their own eyes.
