Phil Taylor performing for the Ofad Coming Of Age event at the Long Beach art space. For anyone who has the change to see him, Phil Taylor delivers through his performance the purest form of his power and light. I and the Ofad are very grateful to Phil for gracing our event with this presence.
I have seen Phil Taylor perform a number of times now and every time I'm always taken by the emotional level of what is going on; it's as if you cannot help but be disarmed by the power of what your seeing him do. There is a humility in his actions that resonates and commands your attention. As you watch him you get a sense that you are witnessing some sort of shamanistic ritual, an invocation or prayer taking place.
These photos were shot during a show we did in Long Beach at Eric Simpson's space on Nov.14, 2009.
The show was a group effort and consisted of friends and family of Ofad.
