About the Book
Phoenix 20 and 21
It's bigger than itself.
The work is a part of an annual series, each year a new volume will be created from the work I do in the City of Phoenix. I have already begun work on Phoenix 22.
What is it?
It is more than what I see and photograph, it transcends the object and touches on psychology, philosophy, emotion and expression. What others see is up to them and varies widely, however the best experience is to know yourself better after viewing the work.
This is just the beginning.
Documenting life means understanding that evolution is a slow process. It means understanding the intricacies of development and specialization are often as beautiful as the final result. It is the realization that we're all in this delicate world together.
