Barry Seidman grew up in New York's fast-paced advertising business establishing him as one of the top advertising print media photographers in the country. He specialized in still-life photography and worked for the top major brands in the world, eventually expanding his work to include celebrity photography and directing television commercials. Recognition for his work includes every possible industry award including Clios, Tellys, Addys and the Art Directors Club Award.
Seidman then started to devote his time to fine art photography, using his vast techniques and knowledge of lighting and design as a foundation. This led to various solo and group exhibitions all while still connected to the advertising business.
A few years ago, Seidman, and long-time business partner and wife, Mary Ann Kurasz, relocated to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida where he built a studio to focus on his fine art work. He also maintains a studio presence in New York where he continues to shoot for advertising clients.
Seidman's fine art exhibitions have included: Bagged; Aperture Art; Three Sides of Seidman; Selections from Six; Excerpts; Drinks and Smoke; Me, Now; Handscapes; New Eyes and Feast for the Eyes.
New Eyes is also the title of his 338-page photobiography, a compilation of his fine-art photographic series. The large, illustrative book presents 14 of his fine-art series in a signed and numbered, limited edition.
Seidman premiered his latest series, Feast for the Eyes, in New York City, November 2014 and in South Florida, March 2015. For more information, please call (561) 630-5745.
