Barry Underwood, ‘Rodeo Beach’, 2009, Sous Les Etoiles Gallery

Drawing from his early theatrical training, and influenced by historical methods of staged photography and set design, American landscape photographer Barry Underwood seeks to transform ordinary, everyday vistas into unique, and often surreal, experiences. In Underwood’s ongoing series Scenes, the artist relies as much on his ability to harmoniously collaborate with nature as disrupt it, using actual structures for installation as well as long exposure times to harness the area’s ambient light.
Barry Underwood’s work can be found in the collections of The Cleveland Museum of Art (OH), Elton John Photography Collection (Atlanta, GA), The Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Akron Art Museum (OH), TIAA-CREFF (New York City), and the Rockefeller Family Art Collection (Petaluma, CA), among several others.

Signature: Signed and numbered on the back by the artist.
