  Photographing in black and white, Ricardo Barros specializes in images of sculptors and their work. Each of his portraits is strikingly unique, reflecting special insight about the sculptor, her or her work, and the individual experience from which the portrait was created. The Barros portfolio includes images that are as technically superb as they are diverse and surprising. Some, like the striking image of Vladimir Kanevsky against the backdrop of the World Trade Center, are hauntingly beautiful and enigmatic, while others are playful and humorous. Photographs from this series are included in the collections of the Philadlephia Museum of Art, Harvard University’s Fogg Art Museum, the DeCordova Museum, and Grounds for Sculpture. Signed copies of his superb new 166-page illustrated book, “Facing Sculpture”, are available for sale at the gallery.
