Sally Tagg - Artist Photographer SALLY TAGG has produced several books and regularly contributes to a wide range of publications. She has achieved distinction in both the fine arts area and in commercial photography. Sally is currently based in New Zealand.

Sally's focus has always been around portraiture and botanical images. Her early portrait work encompassed both local and international personalities, taken while working for various New Zealand publications. Presently Sally is centered on macro botanical images.

Breaking from the traditional method of presenting photographs, Sally has created a system that allows her work to be hung outside. Sally's recent exhibitions feature these large botanical images which are printed onto a vinyl substrate using U.V. resistant inks.
