Keith Taylor



Keith Taylor's photographs have been widely exhibited across the United States and the United Kingdom, he is a five-time recipient of Individual Artist Fellowships from the Minnesota State Arts Board, and his photographs are held in many private, corporate, and museum collections. In 2011 he was awarded a Minnesota Center for Book Arts/Jerome Foundation mentorship. He has written for photographic publications and also lectured and taught workshops on historical processes.

In London, Taylor became increasingly interested in historical, or alternative, photographic processes and now specializes in platinum-palladium and polymergravure, as well as gelatin silver prints for his personal work. Where possible, he uses contemporary techniques to simplify these traditional processes, substituting safer, more environmentally friendly chemicals for the more toxic originals and using digital techniques to make the large negatives and positives these processes require.
