“For the last ten years Tracey Baran has focused her camera on herself and her close circle of family and friends who live in Bath, a small town in upstate New York. The result is a visual journal of intimate portraits and self-portraits, which blur the line between truth and fiction, snapshot aesthetic and staged compositions. Whether photographing her thirtieth birthday, a hole in her pantyhose or deer hunters from her hometown, Baran’s photographs, instead of being a detached social documentary or the cool treatment of an outsider, are permeated by a tenderness and complicity with her subjects.
