Artist Information



Phil was born in Chicago, Illinois, January 25, l947. He graduated from Deerfield Academy, Massachusetts, and Pomona College, Claremont, California in Art History and Italian. In the 70's he was a photographer for "Fashion Week" in Los Angeles; in the early 80's he moved to Italy and was a photographer "in piazza" for tenor Giuseppe DiStefano. He did model portfolios in Milan-Beatrice, Why Not-, etc., and then moved south to Sicily in 1989 where he continued to do local fashion and wedding photography until 2000.

The years 2001-2002 were spent in Venice, Italy developing a particular non-digital technique for landscape photography and preparing the show, Venice-the Four Seasons. "I try to evoke a visual "mood" similar to what French classical music elicits in me- particularily composers like Honegger, and artist "fauve" Raoul Dufy.

From 2002 on Phil's work has been exhibited throughout Europe.

Presently, Phil is living in Catania, Sicily.
