ARTIST: Phil Eidenberg-Noppe
Phil Eidenberg-Noppe is a Seattle-based photographer specializing in cultural documentary and abstract “impressionist” photography. He shoots at locations ranging from barbershops to elk fields, often using the camera as a paintbrush, pushing digital expression. Phil believes that how people view life is grounded in their identities – the stories people tell themselves individually and collectively, which then affects how people live. Identity in turn is a function of history, environment, time and place. All of this is expressed in the diversity of thought, expression and interaction of world cultures. Exploring and manifesting this is a primary motivation in Phil’s work.
