(b. Feb. 5th 1979)
"Everybody can sing, too, but there's still a lot of interest in good singers."
When I came across the photographies of Tim Barber, I couldn't resist to scroll through each one. One after another, it was just like if I was watching some flashes of a subtil emotional movie. No ending please.
Trying to learn more about the photographer-curator I fell on an interview in which he was talking about the ease of snaping a decent shot with an iPhone and the profusion of photos published on the networks.
"Everybody can sing, too, but there's still a lot of interest in good singers."That was it. The words of a good singer.
