Jeanette Montgomery Barron


Photographer Jeanette Montgomery Barron was known for her portraits of the New York art world in the 1980's.

This web page includes some stories of her life in the art world. She entered in her 20's and photographed some really big names. Jeanette also recounts some little stories about life, her surreal lunches with Warhol, and other tidbits.

Basquiat, Warhol, Mapplethorpe and more are featured here. Her work has been made into books and of course is found in many museums.

I chose this photo of Keith Haring, whose energetic pose looks like he belongs in one of his own paintings.
