Kate Barry, daughter of Jane Birkin and John Barry, found dead
The 46-year-old, best known as a fashion photographer and who was raised for years by the late French singer Serge Gainsbourg during his relationship with Birkin, was found on Wednesday. Police gave no details, saying an investigation is under way into the cause of death.
"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 centre outside Paris.
