Reception: Sunday, Feb. 15, 2 – 4 p.m.

Phil Grout began to hone his craft as a photographer in 1966, working as a photojournalist covering naval operations in Vietnam. He quickly discovered it wasn’t the images of war he was seeking, but more the face of humanity as he roamed the back alleys of Saigon, Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines.

With pictures and words he became a gatherer of the threads, which bind us together as human beings. As the images in this exhibit attest, he approaches his subjects with compassion and clarity of purpose, bringing heart and essence to the surface. Learn more.
