Tom Baril :: Polaroid Type 55 Works

April 12th, 2015

Episode 91 of 240 episodes

Tom Baril was born in Connecticut, attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and spent over 15 years working as a printer for Robert Mapplethorpe. After his tenure with Mapplethorpe, Baril went out on his own becoming best known for his still life table shots of flowers and fruits across a range of mediums from collodion to Polaroid Type 55 to silver gelatin. In this video, I want to talk about his first, self-titled monograph which concentraits mainly on Baril's work with Polaroid Type 55. In this body of work, Baril shows a range of techniques including solarization and pinhole. His printing skills are exceptional as well. Most of these images display a beautiful sepia as the result of tea toning.
