"Annie Taylor’s photographs draw the viewer in with broken, light-catching fragments. On closer inspection, these shards reveal themselves to be collapsed landscapes. Her works present an interesting set of binaries: micro and macro, analog and digital, reverence and warning. Taylor plays with processes, her works existing somewhere between the scientific and the alchemical. Taylor uses photo emulsion as sculptural material, playing with physicality of the wet darkroom. The resulting compositions are shot in high definition digital, capturing the minute details of the emulsion tableaux. The final works are presented as round compositions that give the feeling of globes, yet the details of the works reveal themselves to be portals to other spaces. Talyor leads us to question our own place in the big picture and with each landscape fragment our notions of ecology are put off kilter."
