Phil Knott has been producing powerful photographs for over 17 years. Primarily a portraitist, his images cut to the core of his subjects, capturing their essence and putting it on proud display. Alongside those pictures are his fashion and art images, in which his keen observation of character and personality takes on a more allegorical form. Youth scenes become totems, and cultural references evocative.
Born in England, Phil has been a native of Brooklyn, New York for the past decade.
