Stephanie Barber is an American experimental filmmaker, multimedia performance artist and a writer. Her films frequently mix very static shots — either filmed by herself or found photographs — with narration and/or writing directly on the frame that force the viewer to make connections between the images being shown and the stories being told.
She has also written books of poetry, experimental essays and other pieces.
