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 1992. After two decades of figurative and representational work, her interest shifted dramatically, and she began shooting a new series of work inspired by Cubism, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism. The subject matter of this new series is water, more precisely reflections of common scenes captured in undulating water, distorted by its movement, and frozen by the camera.
