Photographer Tim Barber thinks of photographs like they’re clues to something, like they have some element of mystery or something mystical; a hint at something larger, a bigger story, a bigger narrative. Barber is combining classical compositions, startling lens flares and an adolescent irreverent humor. Arriving in New York he inherited the role of Photo Editor at Vice magazine from Ryan McGinley and established himself as a celebrated curator through launching tinyvices.com. The online gallery of personally hand-picked photographers enabled Barber’s curious, knowing eye to evolve independently of conventional rules of process, time or context.
