About Elvert Barnes

A 50-something gay black male and freelance photographer based in Washington DC.

Enjoy traveling and exploring life.

Regarding my photography and videography as documentary while my focus is to capture moments in time that can not ever be again, simply put, my work not only attempts to record history but also sheds light on my personal story.

Favorite music and artists:

While I grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s listening to Rock & Roll, Soul and R&B I like most types of music. However, my preference is New Age, Electronic and Dance / Circuit and Trance music.
