Ray Barbee is an American skateboarder, musician, and photographer originally from San Jose, California. He started skateboarding in 1984, when he was in seventh grade, and has grown to become one of the most iconic skateboarders of his generation.
His passion and do-it-yourself attitude, which distinguish him as a musician and as a skateboarder, also define his photography. He has been developing his own photos for the last ten years.
Rarely without his Leica M6, Ray brings the same unique perspective to the art of black and white film photography that he has brought to skateboarding. His pictures manage to capture both the loud and soft sounds of life. They document explorations, discoveries and experiences, while casually speaking of his own life at the same time.
Ray’s seamless approach to capturing a moment while nurturing the image through the development process and bringing it to fruition in the dark room make his photographs as humble and honest as the man behind the lens.
Ray is currently sponsored by Ilford, Vans, Krooked Skateboards, Fender, and was also featured in Ilford Photo’s: A Common Thread. He is also a recipient of the Transworld Skateboarding “LEGEND” Award and was chosen to both perform as the opener and debut his work at the Opening of Leitz Park II HQ, In Wetzlar Germany.
