Rashod Taylor is a contemporary photographer whose work is a window into the Black American experience. Taylor attended Murray State University and earned a Bachelor's degree in Art with a specialization in Fine Art Photography. Most recently his work was acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts Houston for his series Little Black Boy. He is also the 2021 recipient of the Arnold Newman Prize For New Directions in Photographic Portraiture.

Taylor is working on a series, Little Black Boy. He documents his son’s life and his own anxieties of fatherhood in the face of a society confronting enduring prejudice, injustice, and racism. In this ongoing longform project, Taylor addresses themes of family, race, culture and legacy through portraiture. Large and medium format process favored by the Artist is a contentious nod to the gravity of content and intention of frame. This format also disarms subjects by slowing time and heightens tension by raising intimacy.

Taylor’s editorial clients include National Geographic, The Atlantic, Essence Magazine and, Buzzfeed News among others. His work has also been included in Feature Shoot and Lenscratch.
