Phillip Via

Phil Via is a civil engineer and a resident of one of the most glorious brownstones in Brooklyn Heights.  It was a delight shooting around his place that damp, sleepy Saturday, and meeting his most beguiling blonde roommate, Jesse.  Phil’s style is bare, and worn-in, and youthful, a fine exercise in simplicity.

    Really interesting that he’s an engineer! With my engineering undergrad degree I find I almost never meet other engineers with any sort of personal style beyond…M&S suits. I wonder what his colleagues think about it. I often get a lot of weird looks around the department.

    You took some beautiful photographs, I especially love the one where he’s drinking a Coke on the bed. Beautiful house as well, great style and handsome chap.. Perfect!

    I love he brings a fresh perspective on such a technical background as civil engineering. It rids the notion of stiff lines with organic and lively feeling style.

    these pictures you took are so awesome. a good pic should tell a story and move u and make u feel something. a picture is definitely not just an shallow lame excuse for a so-called photographer to get closer to a pretty person. well done iz!

    These photos are really lovely. They look like they belong to a nicely art-directed and restrained look book. The picture of Phillip on the bed with the soda is particularly nice.
