Domestic Glimpses (4), mixed media, 5.5" x 8.5'', 2013

Taylor Yocom is a student at the University of Iowa pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography.  Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, she discovered her love of art towards the end of her high school career.  While in college, Taylor has pursued her artistic endeavors, including having her photographs published in a local art magazine, participating in various art shows, and being selected as the Spring 2013 Art Inspires Writing artist with an accompanying show.  She works in a variety of media, including film photography, mixed media, and zines.

Taylor writes the following about her work: "Fusing together my two loves, mixed media and photography, I decided to create my Domestic Glimpses zine.  Inspired by Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons, I took to looking at common objects in my room in a brand new light.  By creating prose to accompany the polaroids, I use a thought out element next to a sporadic image that cannot be reproduced due to the nature of the film.  By including this work in the Daily Palette, I hope to bring more viewers to see my work---a zine---that is traditionally only available to a limited audience."
