You may not recognize the name but you have likely seen the work. Phillip Toledano has published several influential projects to critical acclaim. His ‘Days with my Father‘ photojournal is deeply personal and incredibly moving; while his portraits of Phone Sex Operators offers a glimpse into another world.

In this series, titled Hope & Fear, from 2004, Phillip offers the following:

Hope & Fear is the external manifestation of internal desires and paranoia that are adrift in contemporary American society. What are we afraid of? What do we love? How does our society function, and what does it worship? (All costumes are real)
