Most Likely To Appear In GQ Style

We’ve all fantasized about either a) quitting a shitty job in a spectacular, Office Space-esque fashion, or b) going back to a job you were once fired from and showing everyone how awesome you are now.

Model/photographer/stylist Phoenix Johnson didn’t do either of those (because he’s not a petty jerk like us), though he certainly could have. After being fired from Nordstrom, he appeared in a Nordstrom ad that has since graced the pages of GQ Style and various billboards around the country. Johnson is making his mark locally as well: his first runway show saw 250 locals swarming 100 Taylor Arts Collective in Germantown back in April, and he’s worked with hometown heroes like Amanda Valentine and AMAX’s Amanda O’Connor. And if that weren’t enough, he just launched his modeling agency, BOYS AND GIRLS MODEL MGMT, and is already planning a second runway show for April 2017.

When I create, I often think of what Johannes Itten said, “He who wishes to become a master of color must see, feel, and experience each individual color in its endless combinations with all other colors.”. I’m also inspired frequently by love and loneliness and want folks consuming my work to be encouraged to start paying attention to the little details in everyday life, appreciate the simple things, and let them eventually inspire you! Ultimately, I’m just trying to become a mother fuckin master of color.
