Tom Baril's Photography
BARIL - While attending the School of Visual
Arts, Tom Baril began
working as Robert Mapplethorpe's printer. Working
closely with the
photographer he developed the lush quality of
Although primarily known as a printer, Baril was quietly making his own pictures. Avoiding the studio, to distance himself from Mapplethorpe's work, he focused on the urban landscape and architecture.
Finally moving into the studio with a pinhole camera he began to photograph flowers and make still life photographs of curious objects. Today he continues in the studio making meticulous botanical studies and is also producing unique nature photographs with the pinhole camera.
His work is in numerous public and private collections including The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, The Brooklyn Museum New York, The Fogg Museum, Harvard University, and The Center for Creative Photography, Tucson. He has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, and New York.
