The stylized pen and camera in the logo for Frank Barnett Photography were designed to reflect the equal weight he gives to the written word and the photographic image. Frank, a published author, has always been a writer and journalist as well as a photographer, with documentary photography dating back to the early 1960s, followed by a career in scholarly publishing. His long involvement with the arts includes the founding of a carriage-trade bookstore and several fine art galleries. For 25 years he owned a successful advertising agency.
Today, in addition to traditional portraiture and commercial photography, Frank Barnett and Martha Solomon provide a wide variety of additional services, including Vintage Photo Restoration, Photo Color Correction & Damage Repair, and Artistic Interpretations that transform photography into painterly art that they sign Solomon Barnett. We also provide fine art reproduction for artists and estates. If you're an artist, you won't want to let another one of your masterpieces go to a new home before you have arranged to have a high resolution, perfectly color-matched digital file produced for the day when you may wish to create a limited edition print.
Our services are available to estates wishing to preserve and document family art and heirlooms. Our broad publishing background allows us to preserve family histories in book form as well. Although we are not appraisers, we subscribe to a service that allows us to report realized values from both auction houses and online marketplaces for many fine art photographs.
Frank Barnett Photography offers archival printing on a variety of substrates including fine art papers, canvas, artists' wood panels and aluminum. We have decades of experience in both traditional and digital photography, and the use of the latest techniques in photographic post-production.
Finally, we carry a limited selection of beautiful frames up to 16 x 20 inches in our gallery and work closely with Elsinore Framing and Fine Art Gallery that has a deep inventory of custom frames available.
Our first collaborative book, FotoMacher – Examining Lives with Jewish Eyes, a 230 page coffee table book that we produced to accompany Frank’s exhibition at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, was published in 2015 under the imprint of Frank Barnett Photography. As book publishing became an important part of our creative activities, we established a separate entity, Barnett & Solomon, which first appeared on the colophon page of our book, The All American Toy Co. – All American Toys for All American Boys, scheduled to be an exhibit at the Oregon Historical Society Museum from September, 2019 through January, 2020.
Our third publication, Photography In My Bones – Half a Century of Images by Frank Barnett, was the 2017 recipient of the Independent Publishers Silver Medal Award in Photography. The book is available here as a PDF and may be used as a catalog for ordering Frank’s images archivally matted to 16 x 20 inches. Any single image in the book can be purchased as an archival pigment ink print. Prices range from $400 to $550 including domestic shipping. Custom framing is also available. Please contact the gallery with your image(s) selection for exact prices.
Barnett & Solomon provides curated installations for individuals, corporations, and museums, an activity that both Frank and Martha had done for decades prior to forming their present-day collaboration.
