This week, photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to spotlight some of the fantastic images housed in Maggie Taylor's newest monograph, Internal Logic!





As the Gallery Assistant, one of my favorite things to do is sit back and watch visitors try to decipher a Maggie Taylor photograph for the first time. They move forward and backward, sometimes with a little bit of confusion, and I know what their question is going to be before they even ask it:
"Is this a picture or a painting?"
It's easy to see where the unsuspecting viewer could be fooled. Taylor's compositions are digitally constructed with thousands of layers of photographs, scanned objects and textures, the artist makes invented worlds into material ones through her masterful use of Photoshop—and the results are magnificent. Internal Logic is the eighth book from Maggie Taylor, published by Moth House Press in January of 2022, that shows off some of the most brazen successes of this past decade of the artist's career.

As one of the pre-eminent masters of photomontage, Taylor's style has been emulated by many, but it's the singularity of her vision that ultimately makes Taylor's own "internal logic" apparent. There is, of course, also the brilliant sequencing choice of beginning and ending the book with two similar compositions made ten years apart, between which we find dogs in tutus, boats and zebra stripes and luscious bouquets. 

Internal Logic is a title that truly lets you into Maggie Taylor's world and we're so excited to celebrate it. View more images from the book below (they're all available as prints as well!) and mark your calendars for Saturday, August 8th, 2022 for an event at photo-eye Gallery!
