In this episode, photographer Shannon Taggart joins us to discuss her epic project on Spiritualism, her fascination with mystery and the occult, intentionally making mistakes in photography, a few brilliant photobooks and we end with a theory about Michael Jackson that you won’t want to miss.
Shannon is an old friend of co-produce/audio engineer Tom Starkweather, and the spouse of season 2.29 guest Ralph Smith. When I dug into her Spiritualism project I was mesmerized and knew we were in store for a great conversation. I believe when she completes this project and publishes the book, it’ll be a classic.
Thanks, once again to Brett A. Davis for joining us for the conversation and making some memorable photographs.
Shannon Taggart is a photographer interested in liminal space + the photographic process. She is a Programmer-in-Residence at the Morbid Anatomy Museum. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and son.
