A new exhibit featuring breathtaking images of architecture and landscapes created by using old-fashioned printing techniques is now on display in the Baldwin Photographic Gallery.

“The Mark of Time/Albumen and Palladium Prints” by photographer Timothy H. McCoy uses vintage photographic processes to evoke interpretative rather than documentary intent. The photographer prefers to create images that transform reality as seen through the camera lens into expressions of the Buddhist ideal of “oneness.”

“I largely exclude human figures, although humanity is alluded to through cultural symbols,” McCoy said. “I prefer to focus on remnants left behind or on natural phenomena as substitutes for archetypal concerns inherent in the human condition.”

The accomplished photographer holds a combined M.D./Ph.D. from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He was running his own successful private practice when he attended a workshop led by legendary photographer Frederick Sommer. The experience inspired him to leave medicine and attend the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
