To Ashley K. Barnes, photography is a way of storytelling and documenting the diverse ways in which we interact in various societies across our beautiful globe. Via Oregon, Georgia, Chicago, and three years in Buenos Aires Argentina, Ashley K. Barnes has established herself in New York City as a documentary photographer and has found the city an all encompassing playground where her art, travels and global curiosity thrive. It is her hope that her photojournalism will make you curious as well. Does it?
"If people can look at these stories, ask questions, and be curious about one-another, then perhaps we can all finally realize we are the same. Photography was my journal, which became my art, and in the end, another way to connect to the many lives that I encounter." -Ashley K. Barnes
