Taylor Rees

A filmmaker and photojournalist, Taylor Rees is driven by an insatiable curiosity to explore and tell the stories beneath the surface. She infuses her passion for adventure into her work around environmental and humanitarian issues, bringing new perspectives and deeper public understanding to challenging topics such as climate change, energy, food sovereignty, conservation and extractive industries. Her filmmaking in these fields has centered around natural resource conflicts, humanity, and adventures in Alaska, Greenland, Haiti, Nepal, Congo, Russia, Mexico, Iceland, Chile, the deserts of the Southwest, and throughout the Rocky Mountains. She served as the Program Director of the Yale Environmental Film Festival and holds a master’s degree from the Yale School of Forestry in environmental anthropology and film. At the moment, Taylor is working on a number of documentary and film projects and this is the gear she uses to bring her stories to life.

The stories we tell become the world itself. It’s our responsibility as creators to craft those stories together, collaboratively with our subjects, such that what emerges includes the perspectives of those on both sides of the camera.
