About This Site ...

Streisand and Howe

(Above: I went backstage to meet and pose for a photo with Barbra after her 2016 Miami concert. She is *lovely* in person.)

Hi, I'm Matt Howe, and I'm the proprietor, curator, and creator of The Barbra Archives—an online guide to the career of Barbra Streisand.Matt Howe

Since 2003, I've endeavored to make as factual and accurate as possible regarding Streisand's career. I have done quite a bit of research on Barbra's career—besides the many readily available biographies and photo books, I have enjoyed searching through newspaper and magazine clippings, visiting the National Archives in D.C., looking through archives at the New York Public Library, corresponding with other fans and using or borrowing their collections. A couple of fans actually donated their Streisand clippings & scrapbooks to me (ranging from Barbra's early career in the ‘60s to the ‘90s)!

Visitors will also notice that I have many rare and interesting photographs of Streisand on the site, including the photographer's name and any outtakes or alternate shots I'm aware of. I love portrait photography — and Streisand has posed for photography icons like Richard Avedon, Scavullo, Irving Penn, and others.

So ... enjoy! I'm proud of this site and the information I've collected here. Hopefully, Streisand fans new and old will learn something new here about Barbra's incredible, expansive career.
