  Maggie Taylor

Maggie Taylor was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1961, and graduated from Yale University in 1983 with a BA in philosophy. In 1987 she received an MFA in photography from the University of Florida. During this time her work evolved from black-and-white suburban landscapes to more personal and narrative color still-life imagery. Using an old 4x5 view camera and natural light, she photographed bits and pieces of the everyday: old toys, broken bottles, and animals from the garden. Since 1987 her still-life photographs have been exhibited in more that 60 one-person exhibitions throughout the U.S. In 1996 and 2001 she received State of Florida Individual Artist˙s Fellowships. Her current images explore the use of a computer and a flatbed scanner in place of a camera. By placing objects directly on the glass top of the scanner she is able to create a unique type of digital image which has some photographic qualities. These digital images are printed on an Iris ink jet printer.

Taylor's work is in the collections of The Art Museum, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ; The Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, AZ; The Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; The Mobile Museum of Art, Mobile, AL; Musee de la Photographie, Charleroi, Belgium; Museet For Fotokunst, Odense, Denmark; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; NationsBank, Charlotte, NC; and the Prudential Insurance Company, Newark, NJ, among others. She lives in Gainesville, Florida..

The Benham Gallery has available a limited number of prints by Maggie Taylor. We believe art is best sold on a one-to-one basis and will generally provide any reasonable information about the arist, including the artist's resume, background, and the availability of books and prints for sale. The Benham Gallery accepts most major payment types and transactions can be carried out by e-mail, phone, mail, or better yet - by stopping by in person so we can familiarize you with the the work. The pictures on this site are no match compared to seeing the real thing in person.
