Place Perspectives

A photography exhibit created by Jennifer Barbaro

Perspective has the ability to transform what and how you experience something, and ultimately how you see, think, and feel about it, based on the way you perceive it. In these works, Jennifer herself examined these places from various angles and heights in order to capture her feelings of inspiration. In each work, she replaces her camera lens with the viewer to reflect and share her personal experience of each location through her eyes.

Jennifer Barbaro works primarily in photography and video, and Place Perspectives comprises one part of her Perspectives Exhibit. The complete collection spans over a decade of work, with this exhibition highlighting places. Presented here are 6 works, produced between 2012 to 2015.
