About the Author

Richard Phibbs brings an artist's eye to every photograph he takes -- in advertising and editorial, fine art, and his personal work. His work has appeared in major publications worldwide. He has shot advertising campaigns for iconic brands like Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, and Calvin Klein. His fine art photography is in the private collections of many notable collectors. Phibbs's portraits present varied subjects -- from Meryl Streep to Rafael Nadal, from Beyonce to Bernard-Henri Levy. Phibbs is also an experienced director. He is currently working on a project that he filmed in Turkey. Phibbs's passion is photography. His provocative book, Chasing Beauty, published in 2010, highlights a decade's worth of work from his archive. Phibbs's compassion for his longtime causes -- animal rescue and children with AIDS, are his inspiration. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the Humane Society of New York. Richard Phibbs was born and raised in Western Canada. He lives in New York City.

Reviews

"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.'"
WWD

"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."
