From the interview with Jeannette Montgomery Barron on Gorgelous:
Jeannette Montgomery Barron was born in 1956 in Atlanta, Georgia and studied at the International Center of Photography in New York. She became known for her portraits of the New York art world in the 1980s, which were later published in “Jeannette Montgomery Barron” (Edition Bischofberger, Zurich, 1989). She is also the author of “Photographs and Poems,” a collaboration with Pulitzer Prize winning poet Jorie Graham (Scalo, 1998), “Mirrors” (Holzwarth Editions, 2004), “Session with Keith Haring” and “My Mother’s Clothes” (Welcome Books, 2010). In Spring 2013 powerHouse Books will publish “SCENE,” a book of her portraits from the 1980’s.
