Photographer: Phil Provencio
Posted by Maxine Harris
Phil Provencio is a graphic designer and photographer with a talent for transforming the most commercial and mundane sights into edgy masterpieces. Based in New York, Phil has worked as house photographer at the Improv and Carolines clubs in both Phoenix and New York and had work sold exclusively in fashion store, Urban Outfitters.
It is his use of light distortion and colour which make Phil’s photography so visually appealing to its young, edgy audience. His work seems to possess a retro feel, its use of light creating a worn look, as if kept in a box from the 1960s. Indeed, Phil’s use of colour adheres to a pop-art aesthetic, presenting the sights so often seen in popular culture, and digitally enhancing them to ascertain a retro and vibrant style of photography.
