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…
“… 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
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!
