"After looking at this remarkable book, I feel like going outside to chat with my neighbour."--Alec Soth
Higley, Arizona, along with its history, has lost the battle against a homogenous America. This township, once at the center of a farming expanse, is steadily loosing ground to the exploding metropolis known as the "greater Phoenix area." These photographs of Higley are an in-depth documentation of this microcosm of globalization.
Andrew Phelps, born in 1967 in Mesa, Arizona, now lives in Salzburg, Austria. He is a member of the Fotohof Gallery. Higley will be shown at several venues in Europe and in the United States.
