Barron Claiborne started taking pictures at age ten after receiving a camera from his mother, at which point he decided, “God, maybe I’ll just do photography, then I won’t have to do anything else.” Claiborne went on to develop a true penchant for the craft, and created a unique style, working primarily in large format and experimenting with 8×10 Polaroid film in order to lend a bronzed, overly textured quality to his photographs.
Claiborne’s photographic influences are often derived from his Southern and African ancestry, and he uses his work as a canvas for representing the tales and oral traditions at the roots of his heritage. For the past 3 years, Claiborne has focused on the bodies of women, saints, and goddesses. His work has appeared in a number of publications including Newsweek, New York Times Magazine,Rolling Stone, and Interview.
