I was just about to post an update on which of my images will soon be shown where, when I read the article “Nobody Gives a Shit About Your Photos. So I held back, but then I thought, so what? I don’t give a shit. And that’s the whole point; I do it for myself, even this weblog. So here it is…


Rain Cloud, The Badlands


The Badlands

“… a technical wizard like Keith Taylor deserves a shout-out just for the prowess evident in his platinum-palladium print Rain Cloud, The Badlands, an evocation of turbulent sky and rocks that has the brooding intensity of a 19th-century photogravure.”
— Mary Abbe, Star Tribune

Verve Gallery, in Santa Fe, will soon have a selection of images from my series, The Badlands, two of which will be included in their group landscape show this winter.

Also, my image Badlands #16 (Flat Top Butte) was accepted into the Center for Fine Art Photography’s Alternative Process show, and was awarded a Juror’s Honorable Mention.

The Minnesota State Fair

Soon it will be time for the Minnesota State Fair and I have an image in this year’s Fine Art competition. I’m not sure there’s an equivalent to this in the UK, which is why I love entering a print most years. This time it’s a platinum print, Wisconsin Creek.

The State Fair has been good to me. I’ve made many print sales over the years because of it, had a handful of honorable mentions and was once awarded First Place. Another year I sold the entire edition of 10 gravures!

Minnesota State Arts Board

As a recent recipient of the Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, I’ll have an image DM #02 from the Dark Matter portfolio in their show PERSPECTIVES, later this year too.
