Born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, Taylor McPherson is a hapa (mixed race) european/hawaiian/cherokee photographer who currently resides in New York City as a student. 
Essential to Taylor's work is her artistic intentionality: a mission push against a culture that makes it easier to view bodies as hyper-sexualized objects for sale instead of something to exist in. Her art is full of color and contrast, and creates feelings of emboldened existence, power, vulnerability, and love.
