Barry Stone

Throughout his career, Austin-based artist Barry Stone has approached photography with a philosopher’s eye. The camera lens is just one of many transformative photographic tools that Stone employs in his practice. In his ongoing series of “data-bent” pictures, Stone manipulates the digital code of his images to change their appearance through purposeful tampering. Colors and composition shift, with schisms and interruptions becoming central to the reading of the work. His pictures often touch on personal narrative and a focus on his own place within a larger terrestrial landscape, yet reflect outward as well, forestalling an easy read.
