With camera in hand, Reenie Barrow is equally happy photographing flowers from her back yard as well as packing her bags and traveling from Havana to Hanoi, through the Mid-East, Europe, Mexico, Asia, Easter Island and several movie sets. She says, “The thread that binds my work is a straightforward presentation with the ultimate goal of making photographs both visually compelling and catalysts for contemplation.” Barrow’s work has been shown internationally in more than 100 solo and group exhibitions and is included in numerous private and corporate collections—among them, Fidelity Investments, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Zappeion National Gallery, Athens, Greece. One award was presented by the Greek Ministry of Culture after the publication of her book, The Wreath of Dreams, Visions of Greek Villages, noting her “exceptional contribution to Greek culture.” Barrow is a self-taught photographer with a BA from the University of California, Berkeley.
