Self Generation

Posted by
Betsy Barron (Philadelphia, PA, United States) on 10 July 2014 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

All over Barcelona there were people carrying 'selfie poles' to attach to their smartphones to take photos of themselves. Some were even taking video of themselves walking through the Sagrada Familia and laBoqueria. At some point, can't we just put our phones down and take in the sights and have a conversation with another human being? Meanwhile, hypocritically, I was documenting her documenting herself :)

All the world’s a stage. Self-taught, still photographer Betsy Barron is a 70s child recalling the simple, natural pleasures of being outside and watching the light on her world. She’s a decades-long Philadelphia artist who combines her eye for form and function with the calm aesthetic of a passer by. Guided by light and lines with impact, her work speaks to the worth of daily pleasures and absorbing your field of view.

Betsy’s photography is part of many private and corporate collections in Philadelphia and New York. In 2014, she was selected to lead a fine art photography initiative with a worldwide luxury retailer.
She lives and works in suburban Philadelphia. See more at MY WEBSITE

Wow. And I thought people in the US were narcissistic. At least I've never seen that here.
