Kate Barry Sitting with Angels

Kate Barry Sitting with Angels

Today I feel sad because I love Jane Birkin, and on Thursday, December 12, Jane Birkin’s first daughter, Kate Barry, was found dead after falling from her fourth floor apartment. It is not clear whether it was an accident or if she purposely threw herself from her balcony.

Kate Barry had a son born in 1987, she was the half-sister of of the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg and of the model and singer Lou Doillon. Kate was the least “famous” of the 3 sisters, but she may have been the most sensitive and fragile. She was very loved by her mum.

Kate started out by going to fashion school but then changed careers to focus on photography. In fact her photographs were featured in the Telegraph magazine, as well as in France’s Paris Match and Elle, and she also recently exhibited her work titled “Point of View. Portraits. Still Life.” in a gallery in Paris. Kate was sensitive and talented, and she was hurting a lot.

Kate had a beautiful eye for design and shapes and harmony and her sensibility showed in her art. She is not with us any longer, but I can at least go back to her photography to remind myself of the beauty that was and still is in her.
