Barry Swart Photography PORTFOLIO of my work

The true power of a picture lies in its ability to speak a thousand words - using this power, I aim to capture endless chapters... breathtaking moments in time, and relive the memories with those closest to me.

As a boy growing up, my sisters and I would spend hours pouring through the pages of family photo albums: getting lost, and finding ourselves through the stills of memory lane.

“Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” — Destin Sparks

It all started in 2003 when I bought my first camera - persistent in taking photos of my family, friends and any random object I saw. In the years to follow I invested in, and continue to refine my craft.

10 years later (2013) I had my first international breakthrough with “The Story of the Creative - an international exhibition” in New York. Little did I know that I would later have more successful international exhibitions. Returning to New York, I was part of the “Time Square Art take over” where my work was broadcasted all over Time Square.

Another highlight of 2013 was being invited to present my work for the SCOPE Miami Beach showcase.

Finding the perfect shot doesn’t drive me as much as capturing that perfect moment. It’s is about finding a way to show someone how you see them and not how they see themselves, as if they are looking at themselves from a different perspective. People often focus on their flaws and tend forget how beautiful they actually are.
