Barry Batinkoff The Lure of Luxury





Barry Batinkoff

New York based photographer and author

He photographed his personal photo series, the Lure of Luxury in midtown Manhattan from 2006 - 2014. After Covid-19 had wreaked havoc for six months on New York City and he had been self-quaranting in upstate, he felt he needed to do something that he could share of New York. 

He created Barry Batinkoff's New York City abstracts in two volumes. Volume I Black & White  and Volume II Color. The images  are strange, beautiful, and exciting.


He researched, photographed, edited and published his memoir "Genocide Alters Generations" as a personal decades long search for truth, understanding and closure about his own family tragedy.

Batinkoff received degrees from Cornell University and Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts.
