Jeannette Montgomery Barron began taking portraits of artists in 1982, starting with Francesco Clemente. From there she photographed other such notable artists as Andy Warhol, Dennis Hopper, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and William Burroughs. It is impossible to avoid the intimacy of Montgomery Barron’s images. Her beautiful use of natural light in combination with her uncanny ability for putting her subjects at ease, make for stunning and poetic documents of the most significant culture makers of an entire era.
