About – Jon Barry – Author

Six Weeks with Shelby is an adventure and journey of two people, Shelby and Jon Barry. What begins in Carrabelle, Florida in early October and ends in late November of 2010, portrays a short business relationship between photographer and model in the beginning, to very best friends, by trip's end. Though this book is about the intense photographic artwork they made, their story is about the times they had and the very close relationship they developed over these six weeks as they traveled from Florida through seven states to Louisiana.


Jon Barry
Photographer and artist for over 40 years.


Just like so many other young boys, I discovered National Geographic, and learned how naked women looked. The females depicted were always natives of some far away country. Back then, National Geographic was also a magazine where a great number of nudes were drawn. The fact was, having access to photos of nude women was difficult. I am sure other boys looked and learned through Playboy Magazine or Esquire Magazine. I did not.

Catalog magazines such as Spiegel controlled a great deal of the lingerie market. I would tear out the photos of the nearly nude beautiful women and put that printed page onto one of the little glass tables that my mother had. I would set a lamp underneath it and use it like a light table.
