Harry Taylor , Commercial Fine Art Photographer- Specializing in Architecture and People and how they connect.
"Collecting light, seeing the instant and presenting the essence of a person or a place goes beyond the niceties of technique. I love using the alchemy of my nineteenth century processes and the 8x10 camera. The 8x10 is my default, partner and muse since art school. But in the same spirit of exploration, I use the promise of as many megapixels as I can get to make an images that are unlike anything ever seen before. I hardly embrace the power of both lines of image making. “
