About the Author

Peggy Taylor Reid

“To give an object poetic space is to give it more space than it has objectivity; or, better still, it is following the expansion of its intimate space.’ Gaston Bachelard Poetics of Space. Taylor Reid’s photographic work is an ongoing investigation of natural objects. The objects she chooses to photograph have deeper connections to contemporary social issues such as genetic manipulations (corn), monocultures (feral apples), metaphorical representation of time (decaying leaves, abandoned egg collections, burning nests). It is a poetic reverie and reflection of the complexity in the natural world. She contemplates the notion of how the physical form of an object informs the hidden understanding of systems that we have come to understand through empirical knowledge.
