About Barbara Vaughn


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

Following college, Barbara spent several years in the corporate world before deciding to pursue her long-time passion for photography. She attended the International Center of Photography in NYC, and launched her portraiture business in 1993. After two decades of figurative and representational work, her interest shifted, and she embarked on a quest to discover and document abstraction in the real world. The resulting images, mesmerizing reflections in moving water, explore the parameters of vision and cognition while engaging the viewers’ power of imagination in unexpected ways.
