Taylor Weidman

Taylor’s work has been published by GEO, NPR, The Atlantic, Business Insider, The Christian Science Monitor, The Boston Globe, and many other outlets. His coverage of overcrowding in the penal system of the Philippines was recognized by the Anthropographia Award for Photography and Human Rights, and was exhibited in Geneva, Montreal and New York. His coverage of homeless families in Romania won the New Talent Award at the annual Travel Photographer of the Year competition.

Taylor graduated with a Master’s in Photojournalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Communication at Syracuse University. After working at The Christian Science Monitor, Taylor left the States and completed a long-term photography project about the Tibetan Kingdom of Lo as a Fulbright Fellow in Nepal. This work led to his first book, Mustang: Lives and Landscapes of the Lost Tibetan Kingdom, with a foreword written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
