From the Days With My Father series
Website - MrToledano.com

Phillip Toledano is a conceptual artist for whom everything starts with a idea. The themes of his work are primarily socio-political, although he has of late strayed into the deeply personal. The idea determines the execution. Consequently, his work varies in medium, from photography to installation, sculpture to painting. His first book, entitled Bankrupt (photographs of recently vacated offices) was published by Twin Palms in 2005. The second book, Phonesex (again by Twin Palms) came out in December of 2008. His third, Days With My Father, was published by Chronicle, and was released in June of 2010. His newest book, A New Kind of Beauty (Portraits of people who've recreated themselves through plastic surgery), was  published by Dewi Lewis in 2011. Toledano's work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Aperture, and Harpers, amongst others.
