My name is Les Phillips, I am a writer and photographer. I retired from technical writing after 35 years in the profession. Now I pursue what interests me most; the human condition, environment and science, politics, and any bright shining thing that catches my attention.
My blog Every Picture Tells a Story is sporadic journal of my take on life in the early 21st Century. I maintain it when the spirit moves me.
To me, most artist’s statements are over worked and opaque to the average viewer, of whom I consider myself. Waxing poetic about negative spaces representing the alienation of the middle class, or some such, is slightly interesting. But I think that the work’s title should provide a clue of intent. The artist should get out of the way and let viewers concoct their own experiences.
With my photographs the viewer is welcome to build whatever story or meaning they need, to understand what I’m presenting. As my blog title says, Every Picture Tells A Story and it’s up to each person to tell their own story.
