T. Berry: The World’s Greatest Storyteller Captured in NYC

Horatio_Baltz_10

When you meet Mr. T. Berry, you are unlikely to forget it. Photographer Horatio Baltz encountered the performer and storyteller one night in 2010 while making portraits in New York City. Berry has been a street raconteur since the 1980s, his unique style and presence an integral fixture of the Greenwich Village bar scene. The epic, lewd and strangely profound tales arrested Baltz’s attention and he has been photographing the wandering orator ever since. In a mixture of images and captivating videos, the work attempts to tell the personal story of ‘The World’s Greatest Storyteller’. We recently asked Baltz to tell us more about the project.
