I'm a photo-based artist born in Brooklyn, splitting my time between NY and TX. I love documenting everyday scenes often in communion and celebration.
Miranda Rae Barnes (b.1994) is a photo-based artist born in Brooklyn, NY. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and Justice from John Jay College in 2018. Her practice borrows from vernacular photography and a fine art tradition of documenting everyday scenes of families and friends, often in communion and celebration. Through rich colors, candid moments and environmental portraiture, her subjects are elevated within intimate and personal settings. She has photographed across the United States, both for assignments and artist explorations. She is currently working on a long-form project examining community gatherings and subcultures with an emphasis on gender, style and coming of age. Barnes currently resides and works Brooklyn, NY and Austin, TX.
