Bio

Originally from the UK, photographer and artist Sal Taylor Kydd earned her BA in Modern Languages from Manchester University and has an MFA in Photography from Maine Media College. Her fine art photographs have been exhibited throughout the country and internationally, including Portland, Boston, Los Angeles, Savannah, Mexico and Spain.

Sal is also a writer and poet, and has self-published a number of books combining her poetry with her photographs. Her books are in numerous private and museum collections throughout the country including The Getty Museum and in the Maine Women Writer’s Collection at the University of  New England. 

"My work draws strongly on the landscape, focusing on my home, family and myself in conversation with the natural world.  I am often attracted to the objects and artifacts that we surround ourselves with, as memory-laden emblems of our history and signifiers of time passing. I look to understand how a sense of place can be embedded with personal history."

I consider myself a mixed media photographic artist, as my work focuses on the photographic object, the print, the book, or object as a keepsake of my experience in the world. It provides me in a very tangible and tactile way of recording the discoveries and holding on to the memories that I am trying to preserve. Photographing gives me a way to capture my impressions and writing and making lets me distill and re-examine that experience.
