Artist Biography

Rachel Barrett (b.1981) was raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She began taking pictures as soon as she was old enough to take the device into her own hands, and has rarely put one down since. Barrett received her BFA in Photography & Imaging from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2003 and her MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2008. Driven by an overwhelming sense of nostalgia, much of her work is an investigation into the everyday, an effort to connect with and memorialize the world she encounters, and to reconcile the sense of loss and confusion that exists between the past, present and future. Her photographs have been widely exhibited, featured in the New York Times and acquired into several private collections. She is based out of New York City.
