August 15 2021: Press for Cindy Sherman — Contact
Thanks to Emily Dinsdale for highlighting my new book Cindy Sherman — Contact in her article "Do these portraits reveal the real Cindy Sherman?" at Dazed Magazine.
"Like all images of Sherman, these portraits also raise fascinating questions about our ‘true’ selves and the scope of photography to depict reality. Barron herself is none the wiser. 'I really don't know who the ‘real’ Cindy Sherman is,' she says. 'I wish I did.'"

Ayla Angelos intervied me about my new book Cindy Sherman — Contact and my experiencing photographing Sherman for Port Magazine.
"The visual tome [CONTACT] presents a different side of Sherman, as seen through the eye of Barron who’s known for capturing portraits of many notable names from New York City during the 80s."
Miss Rosen at AnOther Magazine also featured Cindy Sherman — Contact in "Intimate Photos of Cindy Sherman Like You’ve Never Seen Her Before."
"From Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, to Robert Mapplethorpe, Jenny Holzer and William S Burroughs, Barron crafted a quiet, meditative series of personalities that usually presented as larger than life – perhaps none so conscientiously as Cindy Sherman."
"Comprised of 40 photographs all shot on Halloween 1985 in Sherman’s studio, New York, [Cindy Sherman – Contact] is part of a remarkable compendium of portraits shot by Barron of renowned personalities from arguably the most exciting era of NYC underground culture, when the young and indomitable flocked downtown in search of places to work and live among like-minded collaborators."
