Susan Paige Taylor is a student in the social anthropology department and a photographer. She began developing her interest in photography in her hometown in Appalachia, where her father bought her her first camera. She received her B.A. in Japanese Language and Culture at Georgetown University and her MA at the University of Tokyo. While there, she began doing street photography in earnest and did two exhibitions in cafes. Using film photography and exploiting the possibilities of the darkroom, her capstone project will explore human/animal interactions in Japan, particularly looking at food offerings, crows, and stray cats around shrines.
