1 part mad scientist, 1 part genius, 1 part artist and 1 part father and husband, photographer Phil Toledano speaks to RETV about his successful jump from art director to photographer.

His work has appeared in Esquire, Vanity Fair and the New York Times. With his distinct sense of humor Toledano describes his journey from concept to execution and how it doesn't always go the way you expect it to.

His work has run the gamut of portraying himself as North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il to shooting a series about his dying father. Every photo is a glimpse in to the mind of the photographer and a look at how he sees the world.
