About Barbara Chase

As a nearsighted kid hiding behind my thick glasses, I spent hours designing farsighted spaces. Becoming a world-class architect like my grandfather always seemed beyond the tip of my dull pencil. Yet my fascination with Granddad's geometric designs -- his triangles and arcs, his cubes and cones -- had an elliptic impact on both my focal and creative vision, as it does to this very day -- even influencing in which quadrant I position my imaginary characters. Amazing, since a kid I somehow managed to angle around the rigors of geometry class, embracing instead a visual world that finds symmetry in incongruity, and humor in an isosceles triangle! I guess you might say I am a spatial thinker -- who likes to tinker with the perimeters of imagination.

For more than twenty years I have been a commercial photographer, working with CORBIS, CREATAS, JUPITER, and GETTYimages and focusing on 'carpe minatum' . . . trying my best to capture those momentary nuances that are at once bold and evocative.

To celebrate life and to embrace its contrasts are the twin goals of my eight galleries:

AMUSINGS is a gallery of eclectic characters who have 'hung their hats' on the hooks of my imagination.

NUANCES are bold, close-up, and evoke a variety of emotions.

PERSPECTIVES offers specific and unique vantage points.

SERENDIPITY conveys the pure magic of happenstance!

LA PETITE ROUGE is a whimsical 'bijou' series depicting my personal view of the world.

RESEMBLANCE celebrates a handful of famous and iconic individuals you may likely recognize.

TRANSLUCENTS is a series created using shards of stained glass -- arranged, photographed, then dismantled -- resulting in singular and strong imagery.

ROARING TWENTIES is a tip of the hat to the free-spirited young women of the 1920s, whose determination and daring still delight and intrigue.
