Craig J. Barber is known for his quiet and provocative landscape photographs and is recognized as one of today's premier platinum printers. For more than twenty years he has been working exclusively in pinhole format, traveling and examining rapidly changing cultures around the world, creating bodies of work he calls "cultural landscapes".

Bohemia, his exhibition of new work, focuses on Prague and the surrounding Czech countryside. As in his previous landscapes of Viet Nam, Havana and the Catskill region of New York State, the images are ethereal and fading, yet at the same time seem to be rooted in both a personal and collective memory. Despite his numerous visits to Prague and his familiarity with the region, there is always a vague sense of looking in from the outside, of not quite finding one's place in the transition of culture. The images are beautifully enhanced with the rich tonal scale, sensuality and permanence of his platinum /palladium prints.

Craig's photographs have been exhibited in more than 60 solo exhibitions and numerous group shows throughout the United States, Latin America and Europe. His work is also well represented in public and private collections worldwide. He has received several prestigious grants and in 2006, Umbrage Editions published his book,"Ghosts in the Landscape: Vietnam Revisited. " Craig teaches photography workshops throughout the United States and Europe. A native New Yorker, he currently lives in Woodstock, New York.

Images are available in 20 x 24 matted format in editions of 12 or 12 x 20 matted format in editions of 25.
