Susan A. Barnett (born in1951) is a celebrated multi-award winning photographer, who resides in New York. Barnett’s fascination with t-shirts began in the seventies when as a young demonstrator she silk screened t-shirts and posters to protest the Vietnam War. Inspired by a vist to New York by the Beatles’ George Harrison, who arrived carrying a Pentax Spotmatic camera, Barnett went out immediately to acquire the same. She then began to photograph her everyday life as it appeared to her. After an internship at the Metropolatin Museum of Art Barnett was employed at the Perls Gallery, a historic gallery on Madison avenue, NY where she worked for fifteen years as Associate Director. Barnett later returned to the School of Visual Arts to study graphic design while continuing to take pictures on the streets of New York City. She continues to act as a consultant in the art world today as well as travelling the world photographing the man on the street.
