Bolinas an exhibition of personal work by Rachel Barrett, the 2010 Tierney Fellowship award recipient, opens tonight at the Gulf + Western Gallery in New York. Barrett is one of PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers for 2011. “There is a deep integration between humans and nature in Bolinas, and this is an integral aspect of what this work is about,” Barrett told PDN. She adds that our technology–driven culture that can lack human interaction “has led many in my generation to truly take their lives into their own hands, shape and create the kind of life, and quality of life, that they want and need.” The exhibition is on view until July 30, 2011.To see more of her work click here.
