Barbara Luisi is a photographer and a musician. She lives and works in New York City; Zurich, Switzerland and Apulia, Italy with her husband Fabio and two sons. She has said "my work is concerned exclusively with the perception of three elements: darkness, sound and loneliness. As a trained classical violinist, I have to first hear my images and it is always this noise or music that triggers my themes."

At age seventeen, she began exploring photography, experimenting with a Leica M6 and developing her work in her own darkroom. During the past decade she has devoted her time to her photography and numerous projects and books.

Throughout the bodies of her work she explores her fascination with myriad manifestations of light, especially nocturnal light in the streets of New York, Florence, Oslo, Tokyo, Vienna and Paris or deep in ancient caves or reflected in seacapes.

In the review of the 2013 exhibition “Water and Dreams” it was remarked "Barbara Luisi oscillates somewhere in between water and fire. The effects of solarization, interplays with the composition carving contours, scenes that are nearly abstract and instants, carefully refined and manually worked on."

Her work is included in public and private collections throughout the world.
