Taos, NM Website | View All Works

Originally a painter and printmaker studying at Albright Knox School of Fine Art, Pratt Institute and The School of Visual Arts, Gail Russell received her first camera in 1968 and has never put it down.

After independent study with photographic surrealist Jerry Uelsmann, Russell moved to Taos in 1978, and her work has been published and exhibited widely and continuously since. She was named a Taos Living Master for her photography and is one of the Remarkable Women of Taos.


This section of work is called ‘The Life & Times of Emma Russell.’ Inspired by the works of Edward S. Curtis, she asks, “what if I was a photographer in Taos in the late 1800’s?”
