Fine art photography and clay art
Barbara Seiler has lived in New York City and Los Angeles and has now settled in Galisteo. She began her career working for studio photographer, Bud Fraker, of Beverly Hills. Later, in New York and LA, she worked as an assistant film editor, incorporating her stills into documentary film projects. She has used her reportage skills for print ads and as a still photographer for commercials and feature films.
Traveling extensively in the U.S. and Europe, Barbara has captured a vast collection of superb photographic images. B&W photography has so many options to embrace. From a 30×40 black & white print that is hand tinted to the platinum/palladium process, the most archival of all photographs. Working in b&w demands greater skill and dramatizes the subjects. Photographs isolate a moment and have the ability to evoke sentiment, a sensibility of experience. Barbara’s artwork reflects meticulous attention to detail and preparation to insure archival quality. “The still photograph is a freezing of a moment, catching an expression in time, to be savored over and over again.”
“Her vision is as classically austere as that of Alfred Stieglitz. Yet, she carves out a distinct artistic identity through her unique way of viewing the world.” ARTSPEAK, NY, NY. 1996
