Please join us for a lively online gathering with Brian Taylor as he presents a fast-paced overview of a life working in alternative photo processes, as well as a look behind the scenes at his creative methods. Brian will share work in progress and his artistic workflow, filled with examples of testing and exploring various printing techniques including cyanotypes, gum printing, photography with mixed media, collage, darkroom manipulation, and handmade books. This will of course include numerous tragic examples of big ideas and good intentions gone terribly wrong, along with a few thoughts about art and life.

Brian was born in the Southwest near Tucson, Arizona. This is the land of Carlos Castaneda, forever influencing Brian with the magic of the Sonora Desert and fueling his interest in voodoo photo processes. After 40 years of teaching photography as a university professor and chairing a department of art and art history, he hung up his professor’s cap and served as the Director of the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel (2015-2019), before returning to his own studio practice. When things occasionally do go right, Brian’s artwork has been exhibited internationally and is included in the permanent collections of of the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY. His work has been published in American Photographer, Photo Asia, Exploring Color Photography, The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, Photographic Possibilities, Transformational Imagemaking, and Seizing the Light: A History of Photography.
