Barbara McQueen

b.1953
Barbara McQueen was an Oregon farm girl turned world class fashion model – known as Barbara Minty – when she met Steve McQueen in 1977. Roughly half his age, Barbara enjoyed a life outside of Hollywood with the maverick star, who'd mostly left the spotlight behind to pursue his passions for motorcycles, antique airplanes and vintage pick-up trucks, in which the couple would tour around America. She took more than 400 photographs of her late husband, from 1977 to 1980. These poignant images document their three-and-a-half year relationship and lends proof to the fact that McQueen had finally achieved the peace that eluded him for so long.
