Patrick Parrish Gallery presents the photographs of Jeannette Montgomery Barron. Jeannette’s decisive and intimate portraits of artists, actors and the denizens of Downtown New York in the 1980’s define the era. Now, with so many younger artists in their 20s and early 30s referring back to this lush and fertile time, the gallery felt it was time to revisit these iconic images.

In honor of younger and hopefully new collectors, Jeannette is publishing a new edition of one of her iconic images that will be affordable to those just starting out building a collection. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a limited edition catalog “object” designed by Brian Janusiak of Various Projects, Inc. consisting of unseen reprints of Jeannette’s contact sheets, printing notes, as well as facsimiles of her negatives.

Jeannette Montgomery Barron was born in Atlanta, Georgia and studied at the International Center of Photography. She first became well known for her portraits of the New York art world in the 1980s, and later went on to create a collection of books each based on different aspects of her work: Jeannette Montgomery Barron, Photographs, Edition Galerie Bruno Bischofberger (1990), Photographs and Poems (1998), Mirrors (2004), Session with Keith Haring (2006), My Mother’s Clothes (2010), Scene (2013), and My Life in the 1980’s New York Art Scene (2014). Most recently in 2016, The American Academy in Rome opened the exhibition, A View of One’s Own: Three Women Photographers in Rome, which featured Jeannette’s work along with Esther Boise Van Deman and Georgina Masson.


Jeannette’s work can be found in numerous public and corporate collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Menil Collection, Houston, Texas, The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Kunsthaus, Zurich, Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, Italy, The Archivio Fotografico, American Academy in Rome and The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, among others. She has shown internationally at Galerie Bruno Bischofberger, Zurich, Scalo, New York and Zurich, Jackson Fine Art, Atlanta and Magazzino D’Arte Moderna, Rome.
