Bill Phelps is an internationally renowned photographer presently based in Brooklyn, New York. Largely self-taught, he has worked in the fields of fashion, portraiture and landscape. He draws inspiration from a wide variety of sources ranging from mythology and scientific photography to the arts and cinema. His photographs create bold new worlds of beauty, suspended in time and space. The underlying quality of all his work, however, is subtle dignity and simplicity. Phelps says of his work: 'If I am truly taken with an idea I'll do whatever it takes to make it come to life.'
