Taber was born in New York and lived in Manhattan for most of her adult life until moving to Florida in 2017. Working for over 15 years in the technology industry, she managed large web design and development projects that have been recognized with awards including Graphic Design USA, Nielsen-Norman Group, and a nomination from The Webby Awards.
In 2008, Taber enrolled in classes at the International Center for Photography (ICP) with the goal of creating images to incorporate into her web projects, but she soon realized how photography helped her experience the world with a sense of presence that was hard to achieve in other ways. Photography not only requires her to see the mundanely familiar in new ways, but it also sparks a curiosity that drives her to places she wouldn’t otherwise go and encourages her to interact with people she wouldn’t otherwise meet.
Taber’s primary interests are travel, landscape, and animal wildlife photography. Living in the city for so long and having a background in graphic design, she initially focused on shapes and colors in the context of chaotic urban environments, but recently finds herself driven more towards nature and shooting in places of solitude that are difficult to get to. Taber has been in curated group shows at ICP and Mana Contemporary as well as many juried group exhibitions across the country. She has been a teaching assistant at ICP and tutors other students in photography-based software programs.
