About Barry Allen

Barry’s passion as a photographer is to experience the moment and capture the magic in the world around him. The work is contemplative, utilizing elements of simplicity and story. His approach to photography is spontaneous and reactive — going out on adventures with no preconceived notion of anything. Images are created as he experiences the wonder of nature.

As an educator and professional learning specialist, Barry encouraged students and educators to evaluate and share learning with photographs, photo essays, storytelling and digital stories. Now he teaches photography, joins a friend in creating and teaching the Japanese art form Haiga (Haiku plus an Image) and makes intimate images to inspire people to explore and “see” the magic in the world.
