Tracey Baran - I miss you already, 2003

I don't have any new photos of my own to post but want to share Tracey's. Sadly, Tracey left us 2 weeks ago at only 33. She was one of the first people I met when I moved to Brooklyn - she didn't have a choice since I was sleeping on her couch. Tracey photographed the world around her through self-portraits and intimate views of her life, sharing it all with us. I will always remember going to her opening in 1999, feeling slightly uncomfortable yet completely amazed. She will truly be missed.

Here are a couple links of her work and tributes:

A scholarship fund in her honor has been started at her high school to support a young artist from Bath, NY. If you wish to donate -
