Portrait Session — Jeffrey Phillips

men-in-this-town-portrait-session-podcast-armani

Welcome to season six of Portrait Session, in partnership with Emporio Armani. This season, I’m doing things a little bit differently. Instead of shooting men in this town in my studio, I’ll be capturing them in their natural habitat — living la dolce vita, and finding out what living the sweet life actually means to them in this day and age.

JEFFREY PHILLIPS

In this episode, I’m in Melbourne chatting with illustrator Jeffrey Phillips. With a passion to draw the little things in life that go unnoticed, I immediately felt like I related to his works, observing the lives of strangers from a far. But as we sat down in his kitchen for this interview, I learned that as much as our work has us looking from a distance, we still need to get a little closer to truly appreciate the details.

JASON CHONGUE AND NATHAN SMITH

In this episode, I’m in Melbourne chatting with Jason Chongue and Nathan Smith, the duo behind The Plant Society. Longing to create a plant community based around their passion for design and plants, they saw a gap in the market; educating their generation about the simple skills and knowledge relating to gardening in small spaces. From local workshops, to their first Melbourne plant shop and now their Sydney outpost that includes a guesthouse perched above the intimate location — their growth shows no signs in slowing down — pun intended.
