Praise For Chasing Beauty…
“A ‘vastly interconnected series of marvels, different in their particulars, but alike in their ravishing, unorthodox perfections.’”
Michael Cunningham, New York Times
“’You can see beauty everywhere, it’s all interconnected,’ Phibbs offered. ‘My hope is that people are inspired by it.’”
“His photographs are imbued with intelligence and thoughtfulness, but they are totally spontaneous.”
Ralph Lauren Magazine
“A fascinating juxtaposition of visuals that excite, shock and surprise-reactions consistent with Phibbs’ vision and eye for beauty.”
