Photographer #086: Phillip Toledano

Phillip Toledano, Great-Britain, 1968, lives and works in New York. In 2010 he released his third book Days with my Father. It is an intimate view into the life of Toledano's father who had lost his short-term memory. In his series A New Kind of Beauty Phillip has taken portraits of people that have enhanced their physical appearance by undergoing surgical operations. Phillip put his subjects in real costumes in his series Hope & Fear, playing with internal desires and paranoia that are adrift in contemporary American society. The following images come from the three projects described above.

I've seen his set "Days with My Father" last year I think, and it just touched me and stayed with me for a while. His work is truly amazing and very inspiring.

What a string project to undertake, hats off to him and in some ways as he says he was lucky to be able to document it in that way, he will always have those memories & be able to look back & remember
