Medium

Tom Baril’s photographs of flowers and architecture pay homage to early pioneers of the medium in their graceful, precise compositions and vintage-looking, sepia-toned appearance. Baril relies in large part on analog methods such as collodion processing, a technique he mastered while working for Robert Mapplethorpe in the 1980s. Baril prints the images with meticulousness, balancing the sensuous lines of the plants with the sharp quality of the image resolution. His photographs of urban architecture, often picturing towering monuments to cosmopolitan American, communicate similar technical finesse.
