A Gallery of Slightly Odd and Wonderful Photography from Mr Toledano

Mr Toledano is a photographer of, in his, own words, of “slightly odd things”. Phillip has shot a wide variety of topics from the desolation of the Arctic Circle to devlish video game enthusiasts to a surreal yet thoroughly modern exploration of the American subconscious in his series, Hope and Fear. His work has been exhibited in New York,
Europe and Asia, and has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Interview, Vanity Fair, Le Monde, The London Times, Details, GQ and Esquire.

This post showcases his “Hope and Fear” gallery.

Hope and Fear is the external manifestation of the internal desires and paranoia that are adrift in America.

Bankrupt

Mr Toledano
