London based photographer, Phil Fisk, has a desire to capture his subjects in either harmony or opposition to their environment. Often the result is portrait within a landscape that tries to find a balance between the artifice of all portraiture and the reality of the environment in which the subject finds themselves.
A regular contributor to Observer magazine and The Times, Phil’s style is often used to promote Channel 4 and BBC2 documentaries with an increasing demand towards celebrity portraiture. Phil has photographed artists, poets, actors, directors, comedians, sports stars, scientists and politicians, including Lewis Hamilton, Quentin Tarentino, Russell Brand, Gordon Brown, John Simm, and Stephen Hawking.
Solo exhibitions include ‘Circus’ held in April 2010 in a circus big top as part of Zippos Circus in Blackhealth, London, and at the New Rose, Islington, in September 2010.
Phil was commissioned by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTAs) to photograph the nominees for the 2011 Awards. The images were published as a 10 page photostory in the Awards Night brochure and featured in the Saturday Telegraph in February 2011.
