Tim Barber finds beauty in the mundane, the sublime in the everyday.  His poetic images are classically composed, subtle fictions that feel natural and intimate.  Tim brings a curator’s eye to his work, envisioning photographs as pieces of a puzzle, fragments of a larger whole.  Aside from his own photography, he is an established curator, showcasing the work of hundreds of other photographers through his online gallery tinyvices.com which he founded in 2005.  He lives and works in New York City and his insatiable creative energy keeps him constantly engaged in photographic projects both for himself and others.

Tim Barber finds beauty in the mundane, the sublime in the everyday.  His poetic images are classically composed, subtle fictions that feel natural and intimate.  Tim brings a curator’s eye to his work, envisioning photographs as pieces of a puzzle, fragments of a larger whole.  Aside from his own photography, he is an established curator, showcasing the work of hundreds of other photographers through his online gallery tinyvices.com which he founded in 2005.  He lives and works in New York City and his insatiable creative energy keeps him constantly engaged in photographic projects both for himself and others.

Capturing the in-between times, sunflares at dusk, dawn, and unguarded, intimate moments, Tim’s subtly beautiful observations are published for the first time in a monograph by OHWOW, Untitled Photographs, launched at Art Basel Miami Beach in 2011.

Born in Vancouver, B.C., in 1979, Tim Barber graduated in 2003.  Moving to New York he was assistant to Ryan McGinley and later photography editor of Vice magazine.  He has curated gallery shows at Primary, New York.  Tim has exhibited his own work widely.
