About Barbara Vaughn

Barbara Vaughn is a fine-art photographer based in New York City. She is represented by 
Dolby Chadwick Gallery in San Francisco, CA, Friesen + Lantz Gallery in Sun Valley, ID, Quogue Gallery in Quogue, NY, and KMR Arts in Washington, CT.

A former portrait photographer, Barbara’s exploration of the parameters of vision and cognition provided the impetus to create work that straddles the realms of realism and abstraction. Utilizing the transformative qualities of water, motion and chance combine to create mesmerizing, enigmatic compositions that challenge the viewer to recreate their origin. This ambiguity, born from the tensions between the familiar and the unrecognizable, the physical facts and the photographic mystery, invites us to engage our imaginations and decipher the truth.
