"Popular Mechanics commissioned this photograph to accompany an article on the evolution of the telephone. I sketched out a few concepts, and this idea—an abundance of phones in transition from antique to current—was chosen. My brainstorming process to illustrate a concept usually starts off quite simple, then the scale and complication of production grows. It's a treat to turn my ideas into a photograph and especially so when an ambitious idea is chosen. I have to give a lot of credit to my stylist, Megan Caponetto, who found all the phones—an impressive styling feat."
