About his submission, Phil says: I signed up for a portfolio review with Ann Jastrab at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel. To my great surprise, she suggested that I enter Photolucida, which I found very intimidating. But with the encouragement of a number of people, particularly Allyson Ely and Nadine Levin, I decided to give it a try. I was, as you can imagine, very surprised to learn that I was selected as a finalist. This amazing photo journey would never have happened without the PACC. I am incredibly grateful for the encouragement, support and fellowship that I've received from you all. And, I would never have joined without the encouragement of one Wright Schickli, who is now appropriately the membership chair!
Here is one of the images from his portfolio.
