About the Artist
“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
― Mark Twain
As an artist, I am always looking for ways to unlock my third eye and by doing so, change my way of thinking. An experience that can not only inspire me, but can bring me closer to a feeling of enlightenment and understanding. If I had to claim a fear, that would be my fear.
A limited life of limited experiences.
Some people can live in one town their whole lives and find contentment... I am not one of those people.
My joy is on the road with a camera and a desire to see something new. I am Phoenix Taylor, and I am a lifestyle photographer.
I have been many things before I landed on being a photographer. I have actually been a:
minister, a counsellor, a bartender, a roofer, a wharehouse worker, a waiter, a call center csr, a co-owner of a promotions company and an illustrator.
My life has taken many journeys and those journeys have lead me to meet many interesting people and given me many priceless life lessons.
I am pretty sure it is safe to say at this point in my life, that my only addiction is a desire for the evolution of my art and my character. I desire experience, knowledge and personal growth. Taking my art further... taking my integrity further... ridding myself of excuses and fear anywhere I can find it.
Ideally you will find me on the road, with no real destination, accompanied by a muse, a blunt, and a carefully selected playlist. My life is my art, my perspective gives me my philosphy... I just bring my camera and notepad to share it with anyone whose life takes them on similiar journeys.
Through this path in life, I have loved hard, lost hard, felt joy and felt pain... and every moment of it has been beautiful. I wish all of you a fearless life.
