Phil Decker

from documents on migrant farmworkers,
to Oregon crop festivals, 

from Extra "Ordinary" Moments with family, 

to exploring urban landscapes while hiking concrete trails,

from good ol' street photography,

to traces of my family's roots on the Lower East Side.

I'm glad to still be able to savor the light.
