Rachel Phillips

Rachel Phillips is an accomplished photographer from California. She has exhibited nationally and has been published in numerous magazines including American Photo, B&W Magazine, COLOR magazine, and LensWork.

In her series Field Notes, photographs blend the domesticity of home with the joy of wilderness, the natural world. The paper houses are built from letters, postcards and envelopes saved through the decades in old shoeboxes by her grandparents and discovered in their attic a few years ago. The images are printed on old envelopes collected from around the world; artifacts from the last centuries.
