New Exhibition of Photography by Rachel Barrett


Baxter & Cook Art Advisors is pleased to announce “Of the Land” the first solo exhibition and the West Coast debut of New York-based photographer Rachel Barrett.

Through her photographs we enter into the cohesive intricacy of relationships that exist in Bolinas, the love of and responsibility for the place, the unity of interrelated interests within it. We encounter vignettes of the forest, ocean and domestic life as well as intimate portraits of people closely intertwined with the workings of nature.

Rachel Barrett (b.1981) was raised in Cambridge, MA.  She received  her BFA in Photography from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2003 and her MFA in Photography & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2008.  Her work has been exhibited nationally, featured in the New York Times and acquired into several private collections.  Barrett is an adjunct professor of photography at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, NY and is based in New York City.
