Allan Baillie

"Often we can recognize the sacred world in a new way when something has been observed with the heart and revealed openly in a photograph."

Whatever seduces Allan Baillie's eye may become a compellingly tranquil, though vibrant photograph. His black-and-white work on isolated subjects is an effort by the artist to present the "essence of the magical poetry in nature."

Baillie uses a large format camera and Polaroid film to capture his wistful, finely detailed images. Adding toner during the printing process creates a warmth that pervades the seemingly still subject matter, making it come alive with light, shadow and depth.
