EP9: Webster Phillips,III

This week we talk with Webster Phillips, III, about continuing a family legacy photographing Black life and culture in Baltimore.

Webster Phillips,III, comes from a family of photographers whose collective work spans close to 70 years. Philips Grandfather, Henry Phillips, Sr. , and father, Irving H. Phillips, Jr., were prolific photographers in their own right, and now Phillips continues the three generation tradition of documenting life in Baltimore through photography.
