Black and White



Since 1973, Janice Barkan has been a photographer dedicated to the enhancement and preservation of black and white imagery. As the owner of Barkan Studio, she began her career as a portrait photographer in the hope of re-educating the public to the art of black and white photography.

After developing her own formulas for print production and applying them successfully to her portraits, Ms. Barkan needed to explore other genres in order to grow and develop artistically. After searching for a way in which to photograph the environmental habitat in a way that records the human experience, Janice Barkan developed "Docuscape" photography which offered her a limitless palette in which to create a vast array of textural hues within a broad total range.

All prints exhibited on this site are numbered, signed, limited editions of 25 prints per image. Images purchased are dry mounted on archival board to ensure quality and permanence.

The images used for display in the website are low resolution representations of Docuscapes products.

Purchased photographs are high resolution images that are produced on high quality Hahnemuhle Watercolor Fine Art papers.
