A classically trained photojournalist by trade, Barker studied under professional photographers at Ohio University’s School of Visual Communications. Where he eventually went in debt for numerous thousands of dollars and was barely able to afford Ramen noodles much less film to sustain his artistic life.
Upon completion of his collegiate work, and an absence of employment, Barker pronounced himself as an up and coming professional of mixed media (not seen here). Barker has taken on the role of story teller through works of non-fiction based journals. He slowly perfected this technique while simultaneously dodging mortar rounds and improvised explosive devices while on patrol in Southeast Asia.
Currently Barker has taken on the role of freelancer, while attempting to balance family life in his post-suburban commune, where the deer and the antelope no longer play.
The artist is originally from Ohio, via West Virginia and Kentucky, but currently resides in Colorado by way of Alaska.

…These things he said in words. But much in his heart remained unsaid. For he himself could not speak his deeper secret.
