Valerie Phillips is a photographer and her pictures are gnarly. When she takes pictures for ads in magazines, its not your typical "show the product/focus all attention on the product" picture.
Her pictures remind me alittle of Ed Templeton but not that raunch.Her book is rare and hard to find like Harmony Korines Pigxtras. I guess thats what makes me want it more. She also runs a fake skate shop that doubles as an art project called Cherryvale Skateboard Company.
