Biography

Whether looking inward or offering a glimpse into the lives of others, the work of Phillip Toledano is deeply intimate. He has documented the last days in the life of his elderly father, taken dramatic photographs of video game players, and traveled to the end of the earth to photograph the stark wild of the arctic. His work often takes a socio-political bent, as in his studies of the violence of American entertainment and the legacy of the presidency of George W. Bush, or the controversial series “New Kind of Beauty”, in which he photographed people with extensive plastic surgery in the style of Renaissance portraiture.
