Barry Kornbluh (United States, 1952) studied photography with among others Lisette Model. In the early eighties he started to take on assignments, in which the world of jazz played a central role. Later assignments showed a shift towards portraiture, and he photographed people like Jerzy Kozinsky and Robert Frank. He now lives in the Netherlands and publishes in a range of Dutch and American magazines.
During all that time, he also persistently worked on a personal, poetic oeuvre. His family and friends are central to this. In the exhibition he mainly shows this personal work, together with a small selection of commissioned pieces.
