There was a time when I was constantly looking through Tina Barney’s Theater of Manners because I was also thinking about how to justifiably and unbiasedly photograph family life (She is grappling with it whether she wants to acknowledge it or not.) It’s been a couple years since I’ve thought about that series, so I welcomed the news that four decades worth of images by Tina Barney were on view at Paul Kasmin Gallery. Better than the show though, is that she now also has a website with each series’ gallery deep of images. This is a big upgrade from how I used to few her work back in 2009. Eitherway, looking through I had a few thoughts; Titles are important but can seriously detract too. How did Brian Williams get in there? and Is there anyone else out there making large-format portraits that feel this much like a snapshot?
