Thomas Barrow

Thomas Barrow joined the faculty in 1973 and served as the Associate Director of the University Art museum before he began teaching in the Photography area in 1976. Prior to his appointment at UNM, Barrow served as the Curator of Exhibitions at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. Barrow studied with Aaron Siskind at the Art Institute of Design in Chicago, where he received his M.A. in graphic design in 1967. In his well-known Cancellations series, 1973-1977, Barrow corrupts the straight photograph by drawing crosses directly through the negative before printing the toned black & white images. The work investigated the issue of the original and the reproduction, calling into question the distinction between the thing and an image of it – between reality and illusion. Inventions and Transformations: The Photographs of Thomas Barrow was published by the UNM press in 1986. He retired in 2001.
