His most recent portraiture project, Pullin It All Together, is a book by Paul Wharton published in 2018 “which reveals secrets of styling teams and the tricks photographers use to turn everyday faces into those of supermodels.” Barry is the recipient of the 2020 Communication Arts Award of Excellence.
