The Habit of Being. Kate Barry
With her portraits of landscapes, it is a whole part of Kate Barry’s photographic work that this monograph uncovers. All in fragility, Kate Barry knew how to gaze at these landscapes filled with abandoned objects, resilient plants, inhabited with the discreet and vital strength of little things. The publication includes her contact sheets that she would meticulously cut to isolate her favourite images along with her choice of larger formats joined by various quotes from her notes and correspondences. In the last part, a selection of stills features the unfinished movie she made during a trip to Savannah with Jean Rolin in 2007 on the footsteps of Flannery O’Connor, an author she admired.
