Most of her work is published in limited edition booklets and zines that are much sought-after. Phillips’s books usually feature one model, often a young woman, whom she follows throughout her day-to-day life. The world that Phillips records in her highly evocative, fly-on-the wall photographs feels very appealing and she gives a real sense of the environment they’re in. *** “I Can’t Believe a Girl is Playing Me Metallica” features the Norwegian actress Viktoria Winge (from the series Lilyhammer amongst other projects). We see her wandering the streets of London (Muswell Hill), playing the guitar in her undies, out and about in her native Norway – changing her style like a chameleon. (It looks like there are several different models.)
