Maggie Taylor

A lot of design teachers would show students examples of graphic designers and photographers however none of the artists really stood out to me like Maggie Taylor.

Her artwork is so unique, she creates such a fascinating narrative with her surrealist mashups – even her technique is uncommon. By scanning her objects using an open flatbed scanner in a dark room* (pitch-black room to process photos) she creates depth in her photos.
