TN&F:CARLA

Formidablemag is pleased to present “The Naked & Famous”, TN&F, a new on going series of portraits by BARTE.

Taking its name from the iconic New Zealand’s band, this collection of photographs represent a restrained, open-ended study of black and white portraiture.

Starkly defined against a white backdrop our attention rests solely on the sitters’ state of mind, and as a result, our access to the subjects seems limitless.
