My 2011 New Years resolution was “more personal work”. Little did I know it would be with an iPhone. I went on a volunteer trip with Hope International during the 1-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake. In between shoots for Hope, I randomly started shooting with my iPhone and quickly became interested in the possibilities. I found that the iPhone gave me better access to my surroundings. Sometimes a big DSLR can intimidate people or draw a scene so the idea was to document everything in a subtle, respectful way and the iPhone allowed for just that.
life’s everywhere. even if it shouldn’t be. even if you don’t expect it somewhere. even death somehow could be a start for the new life.

Quarter Horse by Ryan Phillips
I shot this image at Long Hollow Ranch in Terrebonne, Oregon in the winter of 2009. I had never seen freezing fog before and it doesn’t happen often. It is simply amazing!
Everything is covered in white but you can still see the organic shape and structure of the ground and trees as it is covered in fog not snow. Fog comes into the low lying valleys and if the temperature drops below freezing while that thick layer of fog is hanging, it just freezes and sticks to everything.
This print was recently printed 14 feet across by 7 feet high and hangs in the home of Wayne and Janet Gretzky. The print is face mounted to glass and backed with 1/8 inch aluminum di-bond. It is the only printed piece of this image currently in existence.

These photographs were made while wandering throughout the often untraveled backroads of the west, in search of a more real America than the one most of us are familiar with. By taking smaller highways and exploring forgotten towns, I found that America is a place with a sense of poetic beauty and grandeur. Perhaps these photographs will serve as a vehicle for a type of cultural self reflection, to know that our country has more than golden arches, strip malls and track homes. America has character and lots of it!
