Fashion photographer Kate Barry, daughter of Jane Birkin & John Barry, Dies at 46

Police say Kate Barry, the daughter of actress Jane Birkin and James Bond composer John Barry, was found dead Wednesday in Paris, and a police investigation is under way, though no details were given. She was 46.

Barry, who was raised for years by the late French singer Serge Gainsbourg during his relationship with Birkin, was best known as a fashion photographer — her photos were featured in British Vogue and the Sunday Times magazine, and they were recently on exhibition in Paris.

“I chose a profession that shows,” she told the French newspaper Liberation in 2012. “As a child, I was photographed a lot. That must have left an impression.”

After her own earlier struggle with drugs and alcohol, Barry founded an addiction treatment center outside Paris.
