Biography

Barry Stone (b. 1972, Lubbock, Texas) lives and works in Austin, TX, where he is Associate Professor of Photography at the School of Art and Design at Texas State University. Stone’s photographs, often manipulated through a process called data bending, mine the depths of digital photography via the coded units that comprise a photo, illuminating through their concrete detail the vast abstractness of the unknown. A founding member of the Lakes Were Rivers photography collective, Stone’s work is represented by Gaa Gallery, Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, New York and Art Palace, Houston. Select additional solo exhibitions include Expanded Geographies, Lianzhou Foto Festival, Lianzhou, China; New Weather Weaves New Garments, James Harris Gallery, Seattle; and Highway 71 Revisited, Lawndale Art Center, Houston. Stone’s work has also been exhibited at the International Center for Photography and Artist’s Space, New York and the Austin Museum of Art, Texas, and is included in the public collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Henry Art Gallery, Seattle.
