Photography

Bark, Jeff (1963)

Originally a fashion photographer in the 1980s, Jeff Bark then decided to turn himself towards the close relationship that exists between painting and photography, creating monumental images that bear an aesthetic evoking that of the Renaissance and the classic era. Inspired by allegorical and mythological scenes, the American photographer focuses on vulnerable and solitary erotic bodies set in chaotic or dreamy landscapes. All Jeff Bark’s pictures are made in a studio, an artificial manipulation the photographer fully assumes as they deliver a Lynchesque mannerism that functions as the symbols of human experiences and emotions.
