Talor Stone is a PhD researcher and photographer based in Pensacola, Florida. After serving as a federal agent for the United States military, Talor broke from the traditional career path to pursue photography.
As an Arctic specialist, Talor has spent a significant amount of time exploring this region. Her summers in Greenland have inspired numerous academic research projects on topics like globalization and indigenous identity, mass tourism and peripheral communities, and climate-induced human migration among Inuit populations. These themes are echoed in her photographic pursuits which focus heavily on Arctic landscapes and other climate change inspired projects that allow her to visually explore the real-life aspects of her academic subjects.
I live in Bath, Maine with my wife, our three children ages three and under, two dogs, and a cat. I started taking photos in 2012. I have barely put the camera down since. A lifelong love of history and following the weather have combined in photographs that feature classic Maine and New England scenery in beautiful light and unusual conditions. My greatest pleasure these days is to share that joy and love of photography with others. To that end, I spend most of my energy from June to October leading photography tours across Maine, from the Allagash to Monhegan Island.
