Photography // Thursday, June 25, 2015
British photographer, Phillip Toledano examines and visualized the fears of Western civilization in his series “Hope & Fear.” The costumes that were created in order to execute his conceptual visualizations were “real” in the sense that he did not use photoshop to create them.

How does our society function, and what does it worship?”
