Claude Taylor – Travel Photographer
A long time resident of the Washington, D.C. area, Claude Taylor started his career at age 10 with the George McGovern campaign and became a page in the Maine State House at 14. His passion for politics eventually landed him a position working on the Bill Clinton presidential campaign in 1992 and again in 1996. He worked as a White House staffer in the administration, and traveled extensively during his tenure.
Taylor visited Guantanamo Bay, Japan, Albania, Argentina, Uruguay and numerous other locations and was taken with the beauty of these exotic destinations.
In short order, a new fascination was born, and he began taking up to four international trips a year shooting on 35 mm film from sun up to to sun down, documenting treasures most will never see.
Taylor owned and operated the Claude Taylor Photography Gallery in the DuPont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. from 1998-2016. He remains politically active, and founded Mad Dog PAC, a progressive political action committee in 2017.
Taylor continues to travel as often as possible. His works can be purchased online in multiple formats and mediums.
