Philips is a professional musician, artist, and portrait photographer
based in Portland, Oregon. Throughout the past year he has been focusing
on the human body in a state of distress. He would like to thank Helmut
Newton, Bob Coulter, Annie Liebovitz, Colin Rae, Chas Ray Krider and Steve
McCurry for countless hours of visual stimulus and inspiration. Michael
says he has no formal photography training but has been shooting
professionally for a little more than a year. All photographs are shot on
a Nikon D-100 with Nikkor Lenses.
