San Francisco based artist Joel Daniel Phillips creates life-size portraits of homeless individuals. Often developing friendships with his subjects, he takes their story and molds it into the resulting work.
One such example is the work Phillips is currently working on. While talking to and photographing the man, the individual asked Phillips if he saw the horse standing behind him. At that very moment Phillips noticed the scent of alfalfa in the air, a common ingredient in horse feed, and felt the presence of the horse just as the man was seeing it. For the man’s portrait Phillips has placed a horse into the scene, creating a dimension of surrealism and beauty to the hard truth of the homeless man’s life.
I had the pleasure of visiting Joel’s studio during my stay in San Francisco for SEI3.
