Michael Taglieri (b. 1979) is a Toronto photo-based artist; he studied at Concordia University and the Ontario College of Art and Design, from which he received his B.F.A. in photography in 2006. Taglieri’s rich large scale photographs deal with issues of the figure and landscape. Playing off of the dense history of landscape documentation in both paint and photograph, Taglieri grapples with issues oscillating between place and space, and the resulting activation by the human gesture in an environment. Taglieri has been featured in Prefix Magazine.
