Artwork of The Week: 'This Means...' by Delton Barrett

06/21/2018

This week we celebrate the work of one of our favorite emerging photographers, Delton Barrett.

Barrett's photography explores the relationship between his body and the earth, often comparing himself to the softness of the trees, the soil, and the flowers around him. His figure against this is not intended to be in juxtaposition to the natural, but a quest to equate his body as deeply a part of it. This is especially true with 'This means...'; here, we see this attempt to link his body with the environment.
