About the series “Gum on the Streets”:
Barbara has always been an avid street photographer. The images she has chosen for this series leave people with a feeling of isolation. In this world brimming with communication, are we not more than ever lost in our own thoughts…

About the series “Gum in the Garden”:
The inspiration for this series came from health issues her husband has recently faced. These wilting, dying flowers were set in a still life in hopes of exposing their beauty, which she believes, still endures.

“There is nothing more exciting than to see the image you had in your mind come into being.”
